POULSBO — Four students from the North Kitsap School District have been added to the list of National Merit semi-finalists.
Kingston High School’s Jacob Bruce and North Kitsap’s Max Gallant, Theodore Shisler and Samuel Zimmerman are the semi-finalists.
The four students, along with about 16,000 students are in the running for National Merit scholarships. Students must advance to the finalist standing by meeting requirements set by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. That includes meeting all program entry requirements; planning on or currently attending the first year of college; be fully endorsed by the student’s high school principal or official, and more.
About 15,000 semi-finalists will be notified they advanced to the finalist standing in February.
