Fairmont High School is proud to announce three seniors, Sam Barton, Jason Guadalupe, and Sarah Kane, as National Merit Semi-Finalists. They achieved this distinction by ranking in the top one-half of one percent of the more than 1.5 million seniors in the country who took the Preliminary SAT/ National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). They will continue in the competition to be named Finalists. Rachel Gaines, Elizabeth Groll, Harper Luczka, Sullivan O'Hara, Josh Schnipke, and Chris Warner placed in the top five percent of all test-takers and received the designation of Commended Scholars. Jason Guadalupe and Alex Heindl were chosen by the National Hispanic Recognition Program as a result of their high scores, and Ruth Jebessa received recognition as a National Achievement Scholar. Congratulations to all of these students for demonstrating outstanding potential for academic success. Collectively, this group represents the greatest number of Fairmont students recognized by National Merit since 1990.
