Lakeside student awarded National Merit semi-finalist status

Isaac Winters, a Lakeside Lutheran High School senior, has been recognized by the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program. Son of Jim and Kimara Winters, Watertown, he is one of 16,000 Semifinalists throughout the U.S., representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors. Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.

Over 1.5 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants.
