National Merit Scholarship Finalists

Twenty-one students from Great Neck South High School who were previously named Semifinalists will advance as Finalists in the prestigious 2022 National Merit Scholarship Competition (NMSC).

Finalists are Amaar Alwani, Karly Chan, Rena Chen, Iris Cho, Farah Daredia, Amy He, Sophia Hunter, Eden Katz, Jeremy Kotlyar, Andre Lungu, Matthew Moy, Matthew Tsui, Alexander Voses, Isabel Wang, Katherine Wang, Ross Williams, Jansen Wong, Mengyu Amy Wu, John Xie, Rick Xu, and Erin Yim.

PSAT scores for these students were among the highest in the state and their scores on a second examination were as good or better. Having demonstrated exemplary academic performance throughout high school, these students were fully endorsed and recommended by their high school principals. Each student also furnished biographical data and a self-description of interests, activities, accomplishments, and goals. All Finalists will be considered for National Merit Scholarships to be offered in 2022.
