Students Named National Merit® Semifinalists

Mount Notre Dame is proud to recognize seniors Maria Kilgore (Symmes Township) and Elizabeth Mansfield (Milford) as semifinalists in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program.  Juniors entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021 PSAT.  The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. They will now complete the application process that will allow them to continue competing for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million.

National Merit Scholarship winners for 2023 will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July.  Recipients will join more than 368,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar® title.

Mrs. Karen Day, MND Principal, commented, “Maria and Elizabeth have used their academic talents to shine inside and outside of the classroom.  They are wonderful role models of empowerment and I know they are ready to make an impact in their next stage of development at the collegiate level.  We are so proud of their accomplishments!”
