    WRHS’s National Merit Scholar

    Lucas Smith

    Lucas Smith has the prestigious honor of being recognized as a National Merit Scholar in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program for his academic talent. This incredible achievement was given to just over 16,000 students nationally. The recognition as a semifinalist gives him the opportunity to continue in the Merit Scholarship competition and advance to Finalist standing by meeting a number of additional requirements. Finalists compete for 7,140 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million. One of the enduring goals of the NMSC is “to promote wider and deeper respect for learning in general and for exceptionally talented individuals in particular.” Congratulations to Lucas Smith for being one of those students!
