QCHS students achieve elite academic status as National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists

Two Quakertown Community High School seniors -- Mikayla Fuentes and Adria Retter -- have qualified as National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists.

The students are among only 16,000 semifinalists nationwide, selected from more than 1.6 million entrants in the scholarship contest. According to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, Semifinalists represent the top 0.5 percent of the state’s senior students.

“I’m thrilled for the students and for their families,” Superintendent Dr. Bill Harner said. “This speaks volumes for the quality education our teachers are providing here in Quakertown.”
