by Jackson Hole Radio News

Four seniors at the Jackson Hole Community School are among the nation’s high school students who qualify as National Merit Scholarship semifinalists. Josh Hansen, Max Peters, Cannon Mueller and Tommy Berner earned some of the highest scores nationally on the Preliminary SAT, putting them in the running for scholarships. The National Merit Scholarship is given to a select group of high school seniors. Those who take the PSAT in their junior year are eligible, their scores sent to the corporation that oversees the scholarship. Of the more than 15 million high schoolers across the country, only about 15,000 are selected as National Merit semifinalists.
