MASSENA - Four north country students are among the 16,000 semifinalists in the 59th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Local students who were selected for the honor are Jordan D. Smith, St. Lawrence Central School, Brasher Falls; Ben L. Miller and Ke A. Wang, Potsdam Central School, Potsdam; and Wayne A. Brown, a home-schooled student from Heuvelton.

The seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,000 National Merit Scholarships worth about $35 million that will be offered next spring.

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and more than half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.
