Each October, over 1.5 million high school students enter the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying competition by taking the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test, or PSAT. Less than 1-percent of high school seniors across the U.S. are recognized as National Merit Semi-Finalists and only 4-percent are recognized as Commended Scholars. PCA is proud to announce that Kaden Sorensen has been named a Semi-Finalist, and Sawyer Garner has earned a Commended Scholar recognition. Kaden will continue in the competition for a National Merit Finalist scholarship. Congratulations Kaden and Sawyer!
