National Merit Scholarship Winner
Mazel Tov to Alexander Schlesinger! He has been selected as a winner of a National Merit Scholarship!
From Approximately 1.5 million students who entered the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program, only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists (3 semifinalists were from Kehillah's Senior Class). They were designated on a state representational basis, in proportion to each state's percentage of the national total of graduation h high school seniors. In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, a Semifinalist had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance. All winners of about 8,000 National Merit Scholarships were chosen from the group of approximately 15,000 distinguished Finalists.
