The faculty and staff of Pleasant Valley Community High School are pleased to announce that the following seniors were selected as National Merit Scholarship Finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program:  Vivek Joshi, son of Deepak and Janki Joshi of Bettendorf; Konnor Sommer, son of Kevin and Jill Sommer; Vishwajit Subramanian, son of Subramanian Trichy and Arathi Sharada Balagangadharan of  Bettendorf; Sophia Xiao; daughter of  Peter Xiao and Guo Li of Bettendorf.

To become a Finalist, a Semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout the high school years, be endorsed and recommended by the school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student’s earlier qualifying test performance.  The Semifinalist and a school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, which includes the student’s essay and information about the Semifinalist’s participation and leadership in school and community activities.

All National Merit Scholarship winners will be selected from this Finalist group.  Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies, without regard to gender, race, ethnic origin, or religious preference.

Merit Scholarship winners of 2018 will be announced in four nationwide news releases beginning in April and concluding in July.  These scholarship recipients will join some 283,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar title.
