National Merit Semifinalists, Virginia Pistilli and Greta Hachigian-KreutzerWoodside's National Merit Semifinalists
Two Woodside High School seniors are named as 2022 National Merit semifinalists, an academic honor earned by less than 1 percent of high school seniors in the U.S.
Congratulations to Woodside seniors Virginia Pistilli (Left) and Greta Hachigian-Kreutzer (Right) who are among the approximately 16,000 semifinalists in the 67th National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring. Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 95 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
