OHS Seniors Fellinger and Daly Named National Merit Finalists
Congratulations to OHS seniors Stephen Daly and Steven Fellinger who were named 2021 National Merit Scholarship Finalists! More than 1.5 million juniors in 21-thousand high schools across the country initially enter the Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) and by meeting published program entry/participation requirements. Daly and Fellinger were selected as Semifinalists in the fall for being among the top scorers in the areas of critical reading, mathematics, and writing skills in the country. To be considered for selection as a Finalist, the students had to then submit a detailed scholarship application detailing the student's academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. Every finalist competes for one of 2500 National Merit $2500 Scholarships that are awarded on a state-representational basis. Congratulations to our exceptional OHS students!
