Covington Catholic, Villa Madonna Announce National Merit Semifinalists

Covington Catholic High School and Villa Madonna Academy announced their National Merit semifinalists this week.

Villa Madonna seniors Hannah Hassoun, of Hebron, and Ben Zalla, of Taylor Mill, are among the approximately 16,000 high school seniors who were recognized and who will have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million.

Covington Catholic announced Harrison Farrar and Nathan Guenther as semifinalists.

“The Covington Catholic community is very proud of our two students that have been named National Merit Semifinalists,” said Principal Bob Rowe. “These young men are not only excellent students, but they are also active participants in their faith and in extracurricular activities that take place in school and in their communities. This National Merit recognition underscores our academic commitment to excellence as noted by our comprehensive curriculum, strong ACT scores, Blue Ribbon status, and other educational accolades. We are very proud of the well-rounded community leaders that we continue to produce.”

Other semifinalists will be posted at RCN as the schools announce them.
