Covington Catholic, is proud to announce that three seniors, John (Jack) Harris, Nick Prospero, and Alex Williams have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation as semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit® Scholarship Program.

Covington Catholic, is proud to announce that three seniors, John (Jack) Harris, Nick Prospero, and Alex Williams have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation as semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit® Scholarship Program.

Jack, Nick, and Alex now have the chance to continue in the competition, which awards some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships, worth nearly $28 million, offered next spring. The three are now among a nationwide pool of semifinalists who represent less than one percent of high school seniors in the U.S.

To become a finalist, the semifinalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which information is provided about the student’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, and honors and awards received. A semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by a high school official, write an essay, and earn SAT® or ACT® scores that confirm the student’s earlier performance on the qualifying test.

“The Covington Catholic Community is thrilled to have three students chosen as National Merit Semifinalists,” says Principal Bob Rowe. “All three not only exceed academically, but they are also leaders in the clubs in which they are involved, and most importantly, leaders in their faith. This National Merit recognition underscores our school’s academic commitment to excellence, as noted by our comprehensive curriculum, strong ACT scores, Blue Ribbon status, and other educational accolades. We are very proud of the well-rounded community leaders that we continue to produce.”

Jack Harris is the son of Chris and Emily Harris, of Ft. Mitchell, KY.  He is a member of Blessed Sacrament Parish in Ft. Mitchell, KY.  Nick Prospero is the son of Jim and Jennifer Prospero, of Hebron, KY.  He is a former student of St Agnes School in Fort Wright, KY.  Alex Williams is the son of Andrew and Rebecca Williams of Edgewood, KY.  He is a member of St. Pius Parish in Edgewood, KY.
