“Having four of our students named National Merit Semifinalists is an incredible honor,” said PMHS Principal Mark Berkowitz. “I want to congratulate James, Ben, Brooke and Padraig on this wonderful achievement. I also want to acknowledge our incredible faculty and staff whose expertise and professionalism lay the groundwork each day for our students’ academic success.”

Semifinalists now have the opportunity to be named a National Merit Finalist and earn a chance to receive one of 7,250 National Merit Scholarships totalling nearly $28 million in the spring.
