Five CSG Seniors Recognized by National Merit Scholarship Program
Kelly Privette

Columbus School for Girls is proud to announce that five seniors from the Class of 2022 were recognized as National Merit Semifinalists or National Merit Commended Students.

Semifinalists are those students who scored in the top 1% of all students in Ohio who took the 2020 PSAT, and Commended Students scored in the top 3%. Semifinalists have the opportunity to compete for National Merit Scholarships, which are worth more than $30 million and will be awarded in the spring.

We extend our warmest congratulations to these students:
