National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists and Commended Scholars
This year, five Breck students earned recognition as National Merit Scholars through the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship program. Semifinalists have the opportunity to go on and compete for 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million. In order to earn the recognition as a semifinalist in the program, students must complete the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent less than 1% of this year's graduating seniors nationwide. Congratulations to:
Breck's National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists
This year for the first time, Breck’s Annual Giving Committee has three extraordinary students join us as volunteers. We are thrilled to welcome Josh Furman, Sahana Mangipudi, and McKenna Quam, all members of the class of 2021, to the team!
We hope you found the articles and interviews shared by Native American members of the Breck community insightful this month and that as a community we all learned more about Indigeneity. Our last highlight of Native American Heritage Month is an interview with the Sixkiller family. We are thankful for them and for their continued engagement in the Breck community!
During the month of November, we are introducing you to Native American families who are part of the Breck community. You can learn more about Indigeneity during our weekly updates throughout the month of November, which is Native American Heritage Month. This week’s spotlight is on the Goze families.
