Twenty-four seniors from North and South High Schools have advanced to Finalists (from Semifinalists) in the prestigious 2019 National Merit Scholarship Competition. They are now among more than 15,000 students who will be considered for some 7,500 Merit Scholarship awards that will be announced in coming months.
John L. Miller-Great Neck North High School Finalists are: Yoel Hawa, Isobelle Lim, Isabella Mirro, Joshua Rothbaum, and Lucien Wostenholme.

Shine-Great Neck South High School Finalists are: Yinuo Chen, Annie Dai, Emily Gao, Julia Gorenstein, Hannah Kareff, Nicholas Langel, Samuel Levine, Jay Lin, Joshua Liu, Daniel Lu, Kathleen Lu, Richard Miller, Anthony Pei, Ethan Wang, George Wang, Jennifer Wang, Trinity Wang, William Yan, and Eric Yang.
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.
