Two students named National Merit semifinalists

Two seniors from Cedar Springs High School have been named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Competition.



Charles Hyde, son of Charles and Brenda Hyde, and Brittany Bellamy, daughter of Brett and Rhonda Bellamy, were two of the 16,000 semifinalists named in the 56th annual competition. They have the chance to compete for 8,400 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $36 million that will be offered next spring. They must fulfill several requirements to advance to the finalist level, and half of the finalists will obtain a National Merit Scholarship, and earn the Merit Scholar title.

Principal Ron Behrenwald is very proud of the two students and their accomplishment. He said it also might be a first for Cedar Springs. “We have searched extensively, and no one can remember ever having two semifinalists in one year,” he said.
