Seniors Michael Bowling, Ayaka Coffman and Patrick Sullivan have been named 2020 National Merit finalists. The three students will be considered for National Merit Scholarships. In all, nine Hoban students were recognized this year at the various levels.
Hoban is proud to have a longstanding tradition of naming students recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. In the last five years, 53 students have been recognized, more than any other school in Summit County.
About 15,000 of the 16,000 semifinalists advance to finalist status, based on academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership and honors received. Finalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors and are the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
