Five of the ten Canterbury High School seniors named as semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program are from the southwest side of Fort Wayne.

More than 1.3 million juniors entered the 2005 National Merit Program by taking the 2003 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of finalists, which represents less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.

Canterbury students so honored include: Brad Armstrong, Alex Hancock, Andrea Listenberger, Keegan Robbins and Kimberly Roush, in addition, more than 120,000 students enter the National Achievement Program each year; about 1,600 are named semifinalists on a regional basis. Finalists in both competitions go on to compete for college scholarship awards, announced in May.
