in News by

After taking the PSAT in October last year, 101 seniors scored high enough to be recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program. 

54 students were selected as semifinalists and 47 were selected as commended scholars. 

For the 14th consecutive year, the Broward campus is ranked #1 in Florida and is the #2 private school in the nation for total number of semi finalists.

Irene, now a senior at American Heritage, returns to staff as the Online-Editor-in-Chief for her third and final year with the Patriot Post. She loves all things literature and spends most of her time with her nose in a book. Her passion for writing started early, and she is currently the co-president of the Quill and Scroll Society. When she is not studying or writing articles for the wonderful iPatriotPost, she enjoys volunteering and helping lead a multitude of clubs at Heritage. Since 2014, she has worked alongside Best Buddies, an organization that advocates for inclusivity for those with intellectual and physical disabilities. As a co-founder and current board member of the South Florida Best Buddies Student Advisory Board, she plans fundraisers and service projects, including the annual Friendship Walk, which raised almost $300,000. She looks forward to making this year special and as amazing as possible.
