The semi-finalists who represent a variety of academically talented high school seniors, have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring.

RCHS has the third highest number of National Merit qualifiers in the state. Many schools are fortunate to have a single representative, and RCHS is proud to have 22.

This is a fine representation of excellence in academics. Way to go Jags!
