Congratulations to Coronado's 4 National Merit Semifinalists
Seniors Luke Minton, Gyan Moorthy, Callahan Moore and Jungwoo Lee were named National Merit Semifinalists on September 9th. Four out of the seven National Merit Semifinalists from El Paso are Coronado students.
According to a news release cited by the El Paso Times, the students must submit an application, essay and recommendation in addition to performing well on the SAT in order to become a finalist and qualify for a National Merit Scholarship.
About 90 percent of semifinalists become finalists, and half of finalists receive a National Merit Scholarship and are named Merit Scholars, according to the release.
Last year, two Coronado students, Andrew Paton and Teddy Cai, were named National Merit Scholars.
