Nine LMHS Seniors Named 2022 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Linn-Mar is very proud to recognize and congratulate a very special group of high school seniors for being named semifinalists in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program.

The semifinalists are:

  • Clair Ammons
  • Nikhil Anand
  • Nahom Fikreselassie
  • Samuel Greiner
  • Ayush Kalia
  • Aadarsh Kumar
  • Nikhil Reuben
  • Abhishek Sen
  • Linghan Weng

“We are very happy for Clair, Nikhil, Nahom, Samuel, Ayush, Aadarsh, Nikhil, Abhishek, and Linghan on being named National Merit Semifinalists,” said Principal Jeff Gustason. “We are also pleased for their families, who play a major role in the achievement of these National Merit Competition honorees.”

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation released the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring.

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.

Congratulations to all nine seniors on this achievement and good luck in 2022!
