Provide Background Details and Rationale: Amy Blevins, a recent Park Hill South High School graduate, is a National Merit Scholar.

Approximately 1.6 million students entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program, and less than one percent earned semifinalist recognition. To be recognized as one of the 16,000 finalists, Blevins submitted a detailed application and a record of her high academic performance. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation awarded 7,500 National Merit Scholar awards, which include a scholarship.

This year, the Park Hill School District had eight National Merit finalists and seven National Merit commended students.
