Three from diocese named National Merit semifinalists

Three students from high schools in the Diocese of Oakland have been named semifinalists in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Cannon M. Armistead of De La Salle High School in Concord; Omkar A. Salpekar of Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward; and Evin Y. Yang of Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland are among 16,000 students nationwide who will have the opportunity to compete for 7,400 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million.

About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing; about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship underwritten by the scholarship organization, or by 440 business organizations and higher education institutions.

About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The nationwide pool of semifinalists represents less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors.
