Liverpool High School Principal Anthony Davis recently announced that LHS senior Dominick Calabria has been named a finalist in the 56th Annual National Merit Scholarship Program.
Calabria is one of 15,000 students from across the United States who advanced to finalist standing. Winners of Merit Scholarship will be chosen from this group based on their abilities, skills and accomplishments.
Calabria was named a semifinalist earlier this school year after being one of the highest scoring entrants on the 2009 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Approximately 1.5 million students from more than 22,000 high schools in the United States took the test, according to the National Merit Scholarship Program Web site.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is a privately financed academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the PSATs and by meeting published entry/participation requirements.
