During assembly on Tuesday March 29, 2011, Head of School Robert Hill III announced that Brett Beaney ’11 of Scarborough, Maine, is a finalist in the 2011 competition for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Brett was presented a Certificate of Merit for his advancement to finalist standing.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test—a test that serves as an initial screen of more than 1.5 million entrants each year–and by meeting published program entry/participation requirements. The semifinalists were named in the fall of 2010 and must advance to finalist standing before considered for an Achievement Scholarship award. Scholarship awardees will be notified in April and May of 2011.
