Two Area Students Named Scholarship Semifinalists


Two Germantown students have been selected as semifinalists in the 2015 National Achievement Scholarship competition. The scholarship program, administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, recognizes academically promising African American students across the nation and awards college scholarships to hundreds of students each year.

The students from the Germantown area are Amleset Girmay of Seneca Valley High School and Tahiru O. Jallow of Northwest High School. They are among 17 semifinalists from Montgomery County Public Schools, which accounts for a quarter of the 2015 semifinalists from the state of Maryland.

More than 160,000 students requested consideration for the National Achievement Scholarship Program and 1,600 were named as semifinalists. Semifinalists are chosen based on their performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test during their junior year. Approximately 80 percent of the semifinalists are expected to advance to the finalist level and more than half of the finalists will be awarded with scholarships next spring.
