Indian Hill High School congratulates the 14 students who were recognized as part of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their outstanding performance last year on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Ten students from Indian Hill High School have qualified for the National Merit Semifinalist Competition: Bethany Ison, Sarah Kaplan, Mark Kholodenko, Priyanka Musti, Mackenzie Nelson, Cooper Pierce, Alyssa Questell, Ellie Rabenold, Sam Richardson, and Trey Skidmore.

In addition, four Indian Hill High School students have been recognized as National Merit Commended Scholars:  Sumner Colohan, Elina Govil, Albert Kwon, and Nina Price.


“This is academic achievement at the highest level, and we are so proud of our Braves for all they have accomplished,” said IHHS Principal Jeff Damadeo. “This calls for a celebration – and that is exactly what we intend to do; we will honor these scholars during our homecoming football game on October 5.”
