The following member of West Hartford’s Hall High School Class of 2018 has been recognized in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Awards Program.


Hall High School Principal Dan Zittoun has announced that Tessora Change has been named a semifinalist in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.

The process of becoming a semifinalist begins during the junior year of high school when students take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Students named semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state, a ranking that includes less than 1 percent of all U.S. high school seniors, according to the National Merit Scholarship Corp. This year, 16,000 seniors in the country qualified.

All National Merit semifinalists now have the opportunity to compete for $32 million in National Merit Scholarships to be awarded in spring 2018.
