Four members of the Franklin Road Academy class of 2023 have been named Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. This year's National Merit Semifinalists are Benjamin Bradshaw, Stephen Cartiglia, Langston Harold, and Ryan Holman.
These FRA students are among the highest-scoring students in Tennessee. The 16,000 Semifinalists nationwide represent the top one percent of close to 1.5 million students who entered the competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSTQ). Students who are named Merit Scholars in the spring will be given $2,500 scholarships and are eligible for related scholarships given by colleges and universities, as well as business organization sponsors. Congratulations to these students!
