Congratulations to MKA Seniors Michelle Medawar and Julian Okun-Dubitsky who have been named Semifinalists in the 2020 National Merit® Scholarship Program. The National Merit® Scholarship Program is in its 65th year and is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that includes approximately 1.5 million entrants each year. The 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test served as an initial screen of program entrants for this year.

Montclair resident Julian Okun-Dubitsky and South Orange resident Michelle Medawar will be considered for National Merit Scholarships as the selection of some 7,500 Merit Scholarship® winners from the group of more than 16,000 Semifinalists is now in progress. Congratulations to Michelle and Julian on this tremendous accomplishment!
