Eighteen Gilman Seniors Recognized in National Merit Scholarship Program


Gilman School’s excellent academic preparation has yielded results in the National Merit Scholarship Program. The program acknowledges the top students who take the PSAT during their junior year.

Six members of the Gilman Class of 2018 have been named National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists: Nick Auen, Bryan Huang, Bowen Jiang, Michael Johnson, Hari Menon, and Matthew Mu. Semifinalists are the highest-scoring entrants in each state and represent the top 0.5% percent of Maryland’s students. They will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships that will be offered next spring.

Additionally, the National Merit Scholarship Program has named 12 Gilman seniors as Commended Students, recognizing their “outstanding potential for academic success.” They are among the top 50,000 of students who entered the program. Commended Students include: Barrett Crawford, David Gushue, Mekhi Johnson, Anh Le, Jack Mills, Jules Ouwerkerk, Aayush Pokharel, Sami Raza, Alexander Seibel, Max Stern, Kevin Zhang, and Zachary Zhao.

“The scholarship shown by these boys is impressive, and we could not be more proud to see them recognized in this way,” said Gilman Head Henry P. A. Smyth.
