We congratulate Lillian Arangio, Swathi Badrinarayanan, Anika Bastin, Vera Borodyansky, Alexander Chang, Adarsh Gupta, Safaa Hussain, Ashwin Iyer, Ashvin Kannan, Ajay Krishnan, Zhao Li, Claire Luo, Aaron Nguyen, Stuti Pandey, Nikita Senthil, Aditya Tomar, Elsa Ying and Abigail Yuan. These students are in select company. They were among the highest scoring in California on the qualifying PSAT exam, and the total number of semifinalists in the nation represent less than one percent of US high school seniors.
These Lancers are now vying to become finalists in the competition and have the opportunity to compete for some 7,250 National Merit scholarships.
