Students named Semifinalists in National Merit Scholarship Competition

Seniors Colin Doss and Joseph Markowski have been named National Merit Semifinalists in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Competition (NMSC) for their exceptional academic promise. Students recognized as Commended will be announced at a later date.

Doss and Markowski join a long list of Hoban students who have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. In the past five years, 45 Hoban students, more than any other school in Summit County, have been acknowledged for their academic abilities by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Every October, approximately 1.6 million juniors across the country take the PSAT. Students who score in the top one percent achieve the distinction of National Merit Semifinalist. Most of these students move on to become National Merit Finalists, with some winning scholarship money for college.
