National Merit Scholarship Finalists!

On February 8, Otto Anson and Riley Medenwald were presented with Certificates of Merit as Finalists for the National Merit Scholarship Program.  This program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships based students' preliminary SAT scores. The process begins with approximately 1.6 million entrants nationwide each year.

In September, Otto and Riley were named as Semifinalists- in the top 1% of the initial entrants. They represent some of the highest scoring entrants in the state of Wisconsin. Semifinalists were required to take the SAT again. This is the first time in Belleville High School history that two students were named Finalists in the same year!

Congratulations to these two Wildcats! And good luck to them as they move forward in the process. In March, just 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners will begin to be announced.
