Congratulations to Memorial - IB student David Li who has been selected as a National Merit Scholar. David was selected from approximately 1.6 million students who entered the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. Only about 16,000 were named Semifinalists. In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, a Semifinalist had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance. Li is a student in the International Baccalaureate Programme based at Lamar Academy.
