Andy Epstein Wins
National Merit Program Recognition
Andy Epstein is among the 50,000 high school juniors nationwide who qualify to continue the 2001 National Merit Scholarship competition. Over 1,200,000 juniors took PSAT last October and less than 5% top scorers are eligible for Merit Program recognition. Scholarship winners will be announced next spring. PSAT measures verbal reasoning, critical reading, math problem-solving, and writing skills students have devel- oped over many years, both in and out of school. Although only juniors may enter the Merit Scholarship competition, students may take PSAT as early as 9th grade. Congratulations, Andy! Keep up the good work.
