From the San Marcos school district

San Marcos High School senior David Fisher has been honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation as a National Merit Scholar in the 53rd Annual National Merit Scholarship competition.

Finalists must have an outstanding high chool academic record, be endorsed and recommended by their school principal, and submit SAT scores that confirm their earlier qualifying test performance.

Of the 1.4 million entrants to the National Merit Scholarship competition, about 50,000 qualify for recognition. Two-thirds of those qualified receive Letters of Commendation; the remainder become Semifinalists, about 94 percent of whom go on to become Finalists.

Over half of the finalists are selected to receive scholarships underwritten by corporations and business organizations, colleges and universities, and by NMSC with its own funds.
