Six Dreher Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists

We are so proud of the six Dreher seniors who have been named as National Merit Semifinalists.  They achieved this status by scoring in the top 1 % of all students in South Carolina who took the PSAT/NMSQT in October 2022.

These six students are shown in the photo.
