Bay High School seniors move on to National Merit Finalist status
In October 2020, Bay Village Schools announced that 11 Bay High School students were recognized in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSP), including Semifinalists Thomas Beckwith, James Bish and Samuel Ferry. Bay High School Principal Jason Martin was recently notified by NMSP that these three Semifinalists have all advanced to Finalist standing in the 66th annual competition.
These academically talented high school seniors are now eligible for Merit Scholarship awards totaling more than $30 million to be awarded later this spring. These young men are three of only 15,000 Finalists of the more than 1.5 million NMSP entrants.
