Swink is National
Alan Swink, a senior at Sloan-Hendrix High School in Imboden, was one of 143 Arkansas high school seniors to be named as National Merit semifinalists.
A total of 16,000 students nationally are in competition for some 8,300 National Merit Scholarships. The scholarships, worth more than $34 million, will be awarded next spring.
Approximately 1.5 million juniors in some 22,000 high schools entered the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2010 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
The semifinalists are the highest scoring students in each state and represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.
Swink is the son of Doug and Peggy Swink of Imboden. He now has the opportunity to advance to the finalist level and compete for National Merit Scholarships.
