Two Canyon High School seniors have been named semifinalists for the 2020 National Merit Scholarships. Congratulations to Mark Gruji and Ethan Ong.
The students join about 16,000 other high school seniors across the country that were named Wednesday as semifinalists for the prestigious scholarship. About 90% of semifinalists are named finalists, and around half of the finalists go on to receive a scholarship.
The program, now in its 65th year, will award about $31 million in scholarships this spring.
