NORTH FULTON, Ga. – More than half of the 123 Fulton County students named 2018 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists hail from Johns Creek and Northview high schools, with the remaining slots well represented by the other area high schools.

These high performing seniors now advance to the next round of the national program, competing for more than 7,500 Merit Scholarship awards worth approximately $32 million.

Scholarship winners will be announced in the spring.

The students were identified through exceptionally high scores on the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which they took as juniors.

To move into the finalist round, the students must maintain high academic performance, be endorsed and recommended by school leadership and earn qualifying SAT scores.

The National Merit Scholars semifinalists from area high schools are:
