National Merit Scholarship Winners Announced

WALNUT, CA--Five Walnut Valley Unified School District students were named winners in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program on May 7.

Seniors Alice Zhao Zheng Jin, Alexander Cheng from Diamond Bar High School and Bryan Tianhe Li, Michael Ming-Wei Wang, Iris Daoping Zhang from Walnut High School are among the 2,500 Merit Scholar designees chosen from a pool of 15,000 outstanding finalists.

National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. The number of winners named in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the nation’s graduating high school seniors.

These Scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors, who appraised a substantial amount of information submitted by both the Finalists and their high schools: the academic record, including difficulty level of subjects studied and grades earned; scores from two standardized tests; contributions and leadership in school and community activities; an essay written by the Finalist; and a recommendation written by a high school official.

Congratulations!
