LIVINGSTON, NJ — Six Livingston High School (LHS) students recently became finalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program and will be considered for National Merit Scholarships to be offered in 2018.

The finalists include Benjamin Litvin, Sarah Wang, Jerry Zhuang (shown in the back row above), Ruhi Sohal,  Eileen Deng (shown in the front) and Carrie Li, who was also named one of the top 300 young scientists of the 77th annual Regeneron Science Talent Search (STS).

LHS was one of 177 schools across the United States from which one or more Regeneron STS scholars were named this year. In addition to a certificate of recognition, Li will be awarded $2,000 and LHS will receive $2,000 to be used to support science, math and/or engineering education at the school.

The students are pictured with LHS Principal Mark Stern, who announced last week that each student received a Certificate of Merit. The winners of the National Merit Scholarship will be notified in March.
