TCHS Seniors Named Finalists in 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program

  • March 2, 2022

    Congratulations to Caitlin Dufour and Daniel Hammett on being named Finalists in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program! Both students are seniors at Tuscaloosa County High School.

    The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) serves as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. Semifinalists may then continue in the competition to become Finalists. Once a student is named a Finalist, they are eligible to be considered for numerous scholarship opportunities, worth a total of nearly $30 million.

    Congratulations to Caitlin and Daniel on this accomplishment!
