Rachel Hennessy Named National Merit® Semifinalist

Mount Notre Dame is proud to recognize senior Rachel Hennessy as a semifinalist in the 2022 National Merit® Scholarship Program.  Juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2020 PSAT.  This year, 16,000 students across the United States are being honored as Semifinalists.  These students are the top students in each state and represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. They will now complete the application process that will allow them to continue competing for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million.

National Merit Scholarship winners for 2022 will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July.  Recipients will join more than 362,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar® title.
