Hebrew High School of New England (HHNE) recently announced they have been notified by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation that two juniors, Simon Ganeles and David Yashgur have met the requirements to enter the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.
In a notification letter from Kimberly C. Greiner, Director of Scholarship Administration, Greiner notes “these high performers have shown outstanding academic potential.”
Ganeles and Yashgur are among the 50,000 highest-scoring participants nationwide of the 1.5 million students who took the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The two students’ scores placed them each in the top 3 percent nationally. In September both high-achievers will learn whether they are Semifinalists or Commended Students.
HHNE is a co-educational, college preparatory, Jewish High School that inspires a new generation of Jewish leaders who think critically, behave ethically and embrace learning and Jewish tradition.
