A celebratory breakfast honoring the record 39 National Merit semi-finalists from the class of 2015 will take place in the cafeteria on Oct. 22.

“I think the school is really good about supporting its students and appreciating their accomplishments,” said senior Sonal Pai, one of the semi-finalists. “I’m excited for the breakfast to see the other students being recognized.”

The event will begin with muffins, croissants, yogurt, bagels and drinks. Then, everyone will be seated for the formal introduction, during which principal Paul Robinson will congratulate the semi-finalists and ask them to stand and acknowledge their parents and relatives. The ceremony will end with a final round of applause before students are left to mingle.

Around 90 percent of the semi-finalists will gain the title of finalist. The list of finalists will be announced in the spring.

“I think our high performances on the PSAT every year are a testament to the dedication of the teachers and students,” assistant principal Brian Safine said.
