Based on a very high score on the PSAT, LA senior Jacob Brown was selected as a National Merit Finalist in February. He is one of only 15,000 students to be selected for this honor throughout the country. Of the Finalists, approximately 7500 will be named as National Merit Scholars and awarded scholarships for college. Brown now embarks on the final phase of the process to determine whether he will qualify as a National Merit Scholar. Lincoln Academy Director of Counseling and Studies Sarah Wills-Viega presented him with his National Merit Finalist Certificate at the Lincoln Academy Community Meeting on Friday, March 3.
