Bradford Prep Senior Shiva Palpanoori has been named a 2024 National Merit finalist! To be considered for a National Merit Scholarship, Semifinalists must advance to Finalist standing in the competition by meeting high academic standards and completing several additional steps. Finalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and are the highest-scoring entrants in each state. According to the College Board, last year, more than 4.5 million high school juniors took the PSAT, but the National Merit Scholarship selected only 7,500 finalists. That’s less than a fifth of a percent.
"What an honor! This accomplishment is a testament to your years of hard work and dedication! We are proud to have you as a part of the Bradford family." Mr. Gay, Executive Director.
“We are very proud of Shiva! Her hard and dedication is worthy of this amazing recognition.”
Mrs. Little, Upper School Principal.
Congratulations SHIVA!!!! We are SO PROUD OF YOU!!!
