What an Honor!
Senior Jill Ruane has been recognized nationally for her academic excellence earned in part through Gross Catholic’s sensational academic program. She has been named a 2017 National Merit Finalist! Only the smartest of the smart reach this level of scholarly achievement.
Jill has a tremendous desire to be challenged academically. We believe that Gross Catholic has challenged Jill and allowed her to achieve her true potential!
Academically talented high school seniors, like Jill, have the opportunity to compete against other high school students for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered in April from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. About half of all finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title. National Merit Finalist students placed among the top one percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/ National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Congrats Jill!
