EVANSTON, ILLINOIS — A senior from Scarborough High School and a senior from Cape Elizabeth High School have been selected as winners in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Laura C. Henny, of Scarborough, and Lily Jordan, of Cape Elizabeth, will each receive a $2,500 scholarship funded by the National Merit Scholarship Corp., according to a May 6 press release.
The two are among only a dozen Maine students and 2,500 students nationwide to receive such scholarships. Over 1.4 million students completed the qualifying test in October 2013 to earn a chance at a scholarship; 15,000 qualified as “finalists” in the competition.
Merit Scholarship winners were chosen on the basis of “accomplishments, skills and potential for success in rigorous college studies,” according to the nonprofit corporation, which has administered the program since 1955.
The number of winners named in each state is proportional to the state’s percentage of graduating high school seniors across the country.
In the scholarship application, Henny described her probable career field as “undecided.” Jordan hopes to pursue a career in applied mathematics.
