We Congratulate Five 2023 National Merit Semifinalists

Dreher is Proud of Five Blue Devils named as National Merit Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation

Some 16,000 of the high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT given in spring, 2022, representing less than one percent of the nation’s high school graduating seniors, qualify as Semifinalists. They have an opportunity to advance in the competition for some 7,500 Merit Scholarship® awards.

Dreher is pleased to have five students qualifying as Semifinalists:

Jacob Merrill, son of Susan Merrill and Mark Merrill

Bryce Outten, son of Caryn Outten and F. Wayne Outten

Philip Sophocleous, son of Maria Sophocleous and John Clements

William Varner, son of Margaret Varner and Kevin Varner

Audrey White, daughter of Alicia Wilson and Scott White
