Local student wins Merit Scholarship

Yee-Lynn Lee, of Eldersburg, a senior at Liberty High School, is a National Merit $2,500 Scholarship winner.

Merit Scholar winners were chosen from more than 15,000 outstanding finalists in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program, and were judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies. Scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors, based on academic record, including difficulty level of subjects studied and grades earned; scores from two standardized tests; contributions and leadership in school and community activities; an essay written by the finalist; and a recommendation written by a high school official.
