2021 National Merit Semifinalists


Lovejoy ISD is proud to announce that five Lovejoy High School Seniors have qualified as 2021 National Merit Semifinalists.

Congratulations to Mitchell Laman, Sam Lamping, Finnegan McGoldrick, Aniketh Vellanki, and Mark Wen.

Our Semifinalists began their journey as Juniors by taking the 2019 PSAT. The PSAT serves as an initial screening and qualifies students for the 2021 scholarship competition. Less than one percent of the U.S. High School students are recognized as semifinalists.

To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship, Semifinalists must demonstrate high academic standards, participation in school and community activities, and show demonstrated leadership abilities. National Merit Scholarship winners will be selected from the Semifinalists, with Finalists being announced in late spring and summer of 2021.
