Students Who Merit Our Attention
Rye Neck High School seniors Risa Liebman, Delaney Park, and Elena Tisnovsky were selected as finalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program competition.
The three students entered the competition along with approximately 1.6 million students nationwide by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors in 2017. Students with the highest scores were chosen to advance as semifinalists and required to submit a detailed scholarship application, demonstrate an outstanding academic record, write an essay, and earn SAT scores that confirmed their high performance on the qualifying test.
