HUBER HEIGHTS — Wayne High School student Chase Hill was recognized at Thursday’s Huber Heights City Schools Board of Education meeting for being named a National Merit Scholarship Semifinalist. Hill scored in the top one percent out of 1.6 million eligible students.
Chase is also a member of the Wayne High School Marching Band.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. In early September, qualifiers are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state. NMSC provides scholarship application materials to Semifinalists through their high schools.
Finalists will be notified in February, 2017.
