Syra Gutow and Chad Davis.
Finalists To Be Named in February
Two seniors at George Stevens Academy are among 73 statewide to be named 2020 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists.
Syra Gutow and Chad Davis, both of Castine, were recognized at an all-school assembly by GSA Head of School Tim Seeley, who called the recognition “a great honor.”
“It feels pretty good,” said Syra, who plans to study genetics or neuroscience in college. Chad said he might study computer science, software or engineering.
PSAT scores were used to determine semifinalist status. Soon, Syra and Chad will start working on thorough scholarship applications in the hope they’ll be named finalists. From the pool of finalists, to be announced in February, 7,600 students will be selected in spring to receive scholarships worth a total of more than $31 million.
Congratulations and best of luck to you both!
