Shiv Dewan a National Merit Semifinalist

Hoover High School Principal Eric Bornstine is proud to announce that Shiv Dewan is a National Merit Semifinalist. Shiv is one of approximately 16 thousand students named in the National Merit Scholarship Competition. These finalists were selected from all students who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Shiv now has an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship, semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and about half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title. The finalists will be notified in February 2019.

Shiv, the son of Dr. Sanjeev and Mrs. Seema Dewan, plans to major in pre-med.
