6 Union Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists

Six seniors from Union High School have been named 2022-2023 National Merit Semifinalists:

  • Jason A. Boydstun, son of Barry and Huong Boydstun of Broken Arrow
  • Nayab Ijaz, daughter of Samra Tahir of Broken Arrow
  • Kayden J. Kehe, son of Barton Kehe & Emily Goss  of Broken Arrow
  • Celestine Y. Kim, daughter of Jeong Soo Kim & Sun Young Jin of Broken Arrow
  • Michael N. Nguyen, son of Hong & My Nguyen  of Broken Arrow
  • Cassandra E. Robison, daughter of David & Rebeca Robison of Broken Arrow

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 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.

NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 440 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

To participate in the National Merit Scholarship Program, a student must:

  • Be enrolled full time as a high school student, progressing normally toward graduation or completion of high school, and planning to enter college no later than the fall following completion of high school;
  • Be a citizen of the United States or, if not now a citizen, a permanent U.S. resident (or an applicant for permanent residency) in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen; and
  • Take the PSAT/NMSQT ® in the specified year of the high school program and no later than the third year in grades 9 through 12, regardless of grade classification or educational pattern.
