Students named National Merit semifinalists

Six students at three Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Oakland are among about 16,000 high school seniors to be named semifinalists in the 62nd annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Seth Howell and Naama Weksler of Saint Mary's College High School in Berkeley; Rohan Castelino, Alex Colello and Jordan Rivera of De La Salle High School in Concord; and Karthik Kalyanaraman of Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring.

About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants.
