Hauppauge Seniors Named National Merit Finalists

Hauppauge School District is pleased to announce that High School Seniors Brian Eng, Sarah Mackin and Varun Mehta have been named National Merit Finalists in the 59th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSC). To become a National Merit Finalist, students must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm their performance on the PSAT.

According to the NMSC, approximately 15,000 finalists are selected each year out of a pool of more than 1.5 million high school seniors from across the country due to their exemplary performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Beginning in April through July, NMSC will notify 8,000 of the remaining 15,000 competition Finalists that they have been chosen as winners of the competition and thus will gain access to three types of National Merit Scholarships available to competition winners. Those scholarships include: 2,500 National Merit $2,500 scholarships; approximately 1,000 corporate-sponsored scholarships; and about 4,500 college-sponsored scholarships.

“The entire Hauppauge School District community is honored to congratulate Brian Eng, Sarah Mackin and Varun Mehta on being named National Merit Finalists,” stated Hauppauge High School Principal Christine O’Connor.
