Gossett named National Merit Scholar Finalist

Mayfield High School senior Kyle Gossett has been named a finalist  in the prestigious National Merit Scholarship program.  

According to a press release from the National Merit Scholarship Program, academically talented high school students have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million.  

Over 1.3 million juniors entered the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The nationwide pool of semi-finalists and finalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants from each state. 

To become a finalist, Kyle and school officials had to submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about his academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received.
