Seniors Adam Garsha, Siyu (Sarah) Li, and Ethan Wang have been named 2022 National Merit Scholarship Winners.
Homestead High School is proud to announce that seniors Adam Garsha, Siyu (Sarah) Li, and Ethan Wang have been named 2022 National Merit Scholarship Winners. Li was the recipient of a corporate National Merit Rockwell Automation Scholarship. When the National Merit Semifinalists were announced in September, Homestead boasted the greatest number of semifinalists of Ozaukee County public high schools with eight total semifinalists.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. Recognition is based on a student’s performance on the Preliminary SAT exam. Among all students who entered the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program, only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists. They were designated on a state representational basis, in proportion to each state’s percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors.
“We are proud of the achievements of these outstanding students,” said Homestead Principal Eric Ebert. “These three scholars have maintained the highest level of excellence throughout their time at Homestead and have shown an unwavering dedication to achieving their goals both in and out of the classroom. I am thrilled to see what the future holds for these exemplary Highlanders.”
In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, a Semifinalist had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance. All winners of about 7,500 National Merit Scholarships are being chosen from the group of approximately 15,000 distinguished Finalists.
