Six Bronxville High School Seniors Recognized as  National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Six Bronxville High School students have been named semifinalists in the highly competitive 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program, which honors students based on outstanding standardized test scores, academic achievements, submission of an essay and community involvement. BHS’s Wilder Burgin, Isabela Fenner, Jeremy Freeman, Remi Mellinghoff, Lou-fei Sung and Aarna-Pal Yadav have been selected among a pool of approximately 16,000 semifinalists which equates to less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. 

“We are extremely proud of our six students who earned the distinction of National Merit Scholar Semifinalist,” said Bronxville High School Principal Ann Meyer. “These students are not just talented academically but demonstrate leadership skills and a commitment to their community. They serve as excellent examples of students who embody the attributes of the Bronxville Promise.”  

The semifinalists will have the opportunity to submit applications to become finalists for the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 95 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title. Students chosen to receive National Merit Scholarships will be announced in spring 2023.
