SOLON, Ohio - Solon High School has something to celebrate.
A record number of seniors, 30 to be exact, have been named semi-finalists in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program competition. That's more than at any other high school in Ohio, and among the top 50 nationwide.
"Clearly, we are very impressed with the achievements of Solon's Class of 2013," said principal Erin Short, in a news release.
To qualify as a semi-finalist, a student's PSAT score must be among the highest in the state. In order to become finalists, they must attain an SAT score that confirms their achievement on the PSAT qualifying test, demonstrate a record of outstanding academic performance throughout high school, and be recommended by the principal.
Participation and leadership roles in school and community-based activities are also required.
