Eric Wu, one of our top Science Olympians, has achieved something truly impressive. He's been named a semifinalist for the National Merit Scholarship.

Eric's achievement comes after scoring exceptionally well on the PSAT National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) last year. Now, he has a chance to become a finalist and compete for one of the 7,140 National Merit Scholarships, which together are worth nearly $28 million. To put this in perspective, only about 1% of high school seniors in the United States receive this recognition.

Beyond his academic accomplishments, Eric is also a talented athlete. Last summer, he competed in the NCHSAA 1A East Regional in singles tennis.

Please join me in congratulating Eric on this fantastic achievement, and let's wish him the best of luck as he continues in this competition.
