Eight Mamaroneck High School Students Named National Merit Semifinalists

Eight MHS students were named Semifinalists in the 65th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program: Ian McLaren, Alex Astorina, Liana Haigis, Gabrielle Dobkin, Lily Kalish, Kaitlin Spiridellis, Jesse Ward and Nico Santamaria. They were surprised on September 11 with the news of their accomplishment during lunch.


 As MHS Principal Clain points out, even more importantly than the numbers (scoring in the top 2% nationwide on PSATs), “We value these students’ overall contributions to our high school.”
