Four students within the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District were named semifinalists in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program. 

Aaron Goldstein and Brian Keohane from Mepham High School, Russel Miner from Kennedy High School and Max Mogel from Calhoun High School were recognized with the prestigious honor. 

 “These four students represent what our district stands and strives for, academic excellence, integrity, scholarship and character," Superintendent of Schools John DeTommaso said. "I wish all of these students the best of luck in their senior year in Bellmore-Merrick and in their bright futures.”

Semifinalists represent the top one-third, or about 16,000, of approximately 50,000 high scorers who took the PSAT/NMSQT, which has a total of 1.5 million entrants, according to the National Merit Scholarship Program. Students are ranked with a selection index score based on their combined scores in critical reading, writing and math. 

Semifinalists can compete to be named finalists and continue in the process to receive corporate and college-sponsored scholarships, as well as the esteemed National Merit Scholarship. Those advancing to the finalist stage will be notified in February of their standing.
