  • 2019 National Merit Finalist

    Congratulations to Malar Muthukumar, on being named a National Merit Scholarship Finalist! Throughout Malar's high school career, she has received recognition for her academic achievements in AP Biology, AP Chemistry, Spanish 3, and Humanities. She has led her classmates by serving as Bio Club President, Debate Captain, and Scholars' Bowl Captain. As a member of National Honor Society, Malar serves as secretary and chair of the NHS Blood Drive. Malar has placed multiple times at the State level in Piano and is part of The Independent School Madrigals and Chamber Choir.  She has given back to her Community by volunteering as a Literacy Champion and coaching the Independent Middle School Math Counts Team. The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements. In early September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state.  In February, some 15,000 Semifinalists are notified that they have advanced to Finalist standing.
