The Humble ISD Board of Trustees recognized thirteen Merit Scholar Finalists at the April 11 Board of Trustees meeting. National Merit Finalists have the opportunity to earn one of 7,400 National Merit Scholarships and are selected based on their abilities, skills and accomplishments. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation will begin announcing winners on April 19 and conclude in July.
These students entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship competition by taking the PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test) in October 2015 – a test taken by approximately 1.6 million students each year.
