Crestwood High School News

Congratulations Sam Oliphant!

Crestwood High School senior Sam Oliphant has been named a Semifinalist in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program. Sam has placed among the top one percent of more than 1.5 million students who took the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.


As a semifinalist in the 61st annual National Merit Scholarship Program, Sam has an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,400 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 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. About 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.
