Two Seniors Awarded National Merit $2500 Scholarships

RCDS seniors James Chen and Matias Esquivel Losada have been awarded National Merit $2500 Scholarships by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

James and Matias are two of 2,500 students chosen from a nationwide pool of more than 15,000 National Merit finalists to receive the National Merit $2500 Scholarship. National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. The number of winners named in each state is proportional to the state's percentage of the nation's graduating high school seniors.

In the fall, James will be heading to Harvard University and Matias will attend Yale University.

Congratulations, James and Matias!
