In what has become a high school rite of passage, each year approximately 1.6 million sophomores throughout the U.S. take the PSAT and become eligible for recognition via the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test program.
When the program recently announced results for 2020, one EHS senior, Quinn Ogle, was named a Finalist and awarded an NMSQT college scholarship. Finalists are those who have scored in the top 1 percent of all sophomores who took the test in 2018.
Eleven seniors were also designated as Commended students, having scored in the top 5 percent of students:
Three EHS seniors were also named National Hispanic Scholars, scoring in the top 2.5 percent of Hispanic and Latino test-takers in our region:
