Northwest Catholic previously announced that one student from the Class of 2014, Thienly Nguyen of Windsor, has been named a National Merit Semifinalist – among the top 1% highest scoring students of the more than 1.5 million students who took the exam. Another four students were named National Merit Commended Students – among the 5% highest-scoring students who took the exam.
“We are very proud of Anthony and wish him all the best in the college application process” said Principal Margaret Williamson.
