After taking the PSAT in October, 54 seniors scored high enough to become a National Merit semi finalist.
A total of 85 seniors from both campuses were selected — 54 from the Broward Campus and 31 from the Palm Beach Campus. Combined, Heritage students made up 10% of all Florida semi finalists.
Aside from the 54 semi finalists, 48 other seniors were recognized as National Commended Scholars.
“I am so proud of these students for earning this extremely prestigious award,” said Dr. Douglas Laurie. “Not only are they recognized nationally as the top one percent academically, but they are also extremely well-rounded, excelling both in and out of the classroom in fine arts, sports and community service.”
