The National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced that three Dreher seniors are 2021 National Merit Semifinalists.
These academically talented students are Alexander Anderson-McLeod, Bryson Stakely, and Leon Wang.
Over 1.6 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/NMSQT Test in October, 2019. Less than one percent of these students qualified as Semifinalists.
