James "Brighton" Simmons National Merit Finalist

Posted on March 15, 2018 by Scot Allen

Mid-Pacific is proud to recognize James "Brighton" Simmons as a National Merit Finalist.

Every October, more than 1.5 million juniors worldwide take the PSAT. Fewer than one percent of these juniors are selected as semi-finalists who then go through an extensive application process. Less than one half of one percent are selected as National Merit Finalists.

These finalists will be considered for scholarships by more than 4,500 colleges, the National Merit Scholarship Foundation, and corporate sponsors, according to College Counselor Sara McKay-Hines. Congratulations, James!
