Last week, seven East seniors were announced as National Merit Semifinalists. The honor is based on the PSAT test, which is taken in the fall of junior year. To become a semifinalist, students must place in a certain percentile of overall state-wide test scores. From there, they will apply and compete with students nationwide to become National Merit finalists.
