UCHS Student Named 2013 National Merit Scholar

University City High School senior Ethan Farber has been selected as a 2013 National Merit Scholarship Winner.

Ethan learned earlier this year that he, along with fellow UCHS senior Anna Soifer, had been chosen as a National Merit Finalist. From an initial field of 1.5 million entrants, narrowed down to 15,000 finalists, about half go on to become scholarship winners. You can read more about Ethan (and Anna) here

National Merit Scholarship Winners are chosen based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments, including academic records, test scores and recommendations from school officials. 

As a winner, Ethan will receive a $2500 scholarship, something which will surely come in handy as he enters Washington University this fall. 

Congratulations Ethan!
