Five Marist School seniors—Jack Dinges, Erin Egan, Jacob Read, Christina Shin, and Grace Uber—were named semifinalists in the 62nd annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

The nationwide pool of students who qualified as Semifinalists represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. These students entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) last spring.

As semifinalists, these academically talented students will have the opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $33 million. National Merit Scholarship Finalists will be notified in February 2017 and Merit Scholarship award winners will be announced April through July 2017. Marist School has had 15 National Merit Finalists since 2014.


Holy Innocents’ Episcopal school students Andrea Smith, Mary Holt Crewdson, and Caroline Schultz had work on display at the My Atlanta photography exhibition, a free, annual show that welcomes photographers of all ages. The show runs in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography at the Spencer Sloan Studio in the Tula Arts Center on Bennett Street. The exhibition is  open through tomorrow, Oct. 20, from noon–4 p.m.
