HS Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists
Posted on 09/28/2023

Hicksville High School is excited to congratulate Jack Beaudette and Siddh Agarwal for each being named a National Merit Semifinalist in the 69th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program. The two Hicksville seniors are among approximately 16,000 semifinalists selected nationally from an estimated 1.3 million who entered the academic competition upon taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test as juniors.  

Being recognized as a National Merit Semifinalist means they will have a chance to win a National Merit Scholarship, which will be offered next spring. A Semifinalist represents the top 1% of United States high school seniors and highest-scoring entrants from each state.

Jack and Siddh will now move forward with a scholarship application which will spotlight their academic record, participation in school and community activities, leadership experience, employment and other awards and honors they have received. The two will also be endorsed by a Hicksville High School official and each will need to write a compelling essay.

The district is incredibility proud of Jack and Siddh for receiving this honor for the 2023-2024 school year and wishes each of them continued success!
