Louis Dorsey, College Counselor

The Post Oak School is pleased to announce that Henry Q. ’22 is a National Merit Semifinalist. 

On September 15, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the 65th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. Over 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.

NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. NMSC underwrites scholarships with its funds and by approximately 400 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

Henry has been at Post Oak for nine years, starting in the 3rd grade, and has been a great addition to our school community serving in Post Oak’s chapter of the National Honor Society and with our student ambassadors while also being active in Bearkat athletics, Boy Scouts of America, and his church. Henry is a very hard worker and has mastered balancing academics, co-curricular activities, internships, and a part-time job. While a sophomore, Henry created and sold an e-commerce business. He hopes to major in computer science at a selective university.

Let's congratulate Henry on a job well done and wish him well in his quest to become a National Merit Scholar.
