Lindbergh High School is proud to announce that six students have been chosen as 2013 National Merit Commended Students, and one student has been named a semifinalist in the 2013 National Achievement Scholarship Competition.
National Achievement Scholarship Semifinalist
LHS senior Zecharias Mengis is one of more than 1,600 Black American high school seniors who have been designated semifinalists in the 49th annual National Achievement Scholarship Program. More than 160,000 students nationwide were considered for the program, which is based on performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Zecharias has the opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 800 Achievement Scholarship awards, worth more than $2.5 million that will be offered next spring.
Zecharias is interested in pursuing political science when he begins college next year. The National Achievement Scholarship Program was started in 1964 to recognize academically promising black students throughout the nation and provide scholarships to the most outstanding program recipients.
