The Loveland City School District congratulates Loveland High School (LHS) Senior Radu Vasilescu named in the 63rd National Merit Scholarship Program as a Semifinalist. Vasilescu earned the ability to compete for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $32 million that will be offered next spring.
“Radu Vasilescu has proven he is in the best of the best for academic achievement in the entire country,” said Peggy Johnson, LHS principal. “We are so proud of what he has accomplished in his distinguished academic career as a Tiger, and we certainly look forward to what he will achieve in the future.”
Established in 1955, the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) is a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance. It was established for the sole purpose of managing the National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 420 business organizations and higher education institutions that share the NMSC’s goal of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence. Students qualify by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
