SGFHS senior Bryan Currie named National Merit Scholarship Finalist

March 20, 2018

Bryan CurrieCongratulations to South Glens Falls High School senior Bryan Currie, who was named a 2018 National Merit Scholarship Finalist.
Currie was one of 16,000 semifinalists named nationwide and 933 in New York state.

There were 13 school districts in the Capital Region with students named as national semifinalists. To qualify, students had to score in the top 1 percent of all seniors from across the country on the PSAT exam.

Recently, the district was notified that Currie had advanced to the status of finalist. About 90 percent, or 15,000, of the semifinalists in the country are named finalists. Half of these finalists will receive a partial scholarship to continue their education.

“Bryan is clearly academically capable and hard-working, and we’re very proud of what he has accomplished during his time at South High,” said Principal Peter Mody. “In addition to being an excellent student, Bryan is also very self-motivated and has shown time and again he is an independent, competent worker.”

The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT (PSAT) in their junior year.
