Alexander Flowers, a senior at Berlin High School, has been named a semifinalist in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Competition. 

Alex’s outstanding score on the 2015 SAT/National Students stands in the libraryMerit Scholarship Qualifying Test placed him in the top 1 percent of the 1.6 million students in New York State, and the United States, who took the test during their junior year.

In order for Alex to become a finalist for the scholarship, he must have outstanding academic records throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal and earn SAT scores that confirm his earlier performance on the qualifying test.

National Merit Scholarships will be awarded in the spring.

Congratulations and great job, Alex!
