Pennington senior named semifinalist in National Merit Scholarship Program

Beatrix “BB” Kim ’23 has been named as a semifinalist in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Semifinalists have the opportunity to continue in the competition, which will culminate in the awarding of 7,250 scholarships totaling nearly $28 million.  

To qualify for the 2023 program, students took the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). The nationwide pool of semifinalists includes the highest-scoring students from every state, and includes less than one percent of United States high school seniors. Finalists in the program will be designated in February, and winners will be announced beginning in April. 

Congratulations to BB on this accomplishment!
