21 MCPS Students Named Achievement Scholarship Semifinalists
People, Schools

Twenty-one Montgomery County Public Schools students have been named semifinalists for the National Achievement Scholarship. The scholarship program, administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, recognizes promising African American students throughout the nation.

More than 1,600 public, private and home school students, nationwide, were identified as semifinalists for the 2011 scholarship program, based on their performance on the PSAT. These students can now compete for up to 800 Achievement Scholarships.

Last year, 14 MCPS students from six schools were named semifinalists for the award, and eight received the scholarship. This year, the 21 MCPS semifinalists are from seven high schools across the county—Blair, Blake, Magruder, Richard Montgomery, Poolesville, Watkins Mill and Whitman. Overall, MCPS accounts for more than one-third of the public school semifinalists in the state of Maryland.
