National Merit Scholarship

The National Merit Scholarship Program honors individual students who show exceptional academic ability and potential for success in rigorous college studies.  Roughly 1.4 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.  The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of  U.S. high school seniors,  includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.  We are proud to announce that one of our own is among the one-percent selected in the entire country. Congratulations to Felix Shen for this tremendous achievement. 

Felix Shen

My name is Felix, and I’ve been in this district since kindergarten. It’s strange and exciting that this is my last year of being in this district after such a long time. I’m glad I grew up in this community. In addition to the school’s academic challenges, there has been plenty of opportunity for me to learn new things through clubs like DECA and other activities like Boys State and Student Council.  However, one of the most important activities to me has been Boy Scouts. It has allowed me to be a part of the community, with things like the Memorial Day Parade and the Mothers’ Day pancake breakfast. A big part is participating in Dunstable’s environmental conservation efforts. A lot of community service from my troop, including my Eagle Project have gone to help out the town’s wonderful land trust. This has sparked my interest in environmental science. I have independently studied the AP environmental science class and hope to continue learning about it later on in college.
