National Merit Semifinalists
and 36 ACT Scores
Sandburg seniors Paige Kordas and Adam Gleisner earned the highest possible composite ACT score of 36. Less than 1/10 of 1% of all ACT test-takers earn this score, which translates to only 781 out of the more than 1.66 million students who took the test. The seniors also were named as Semifinalists in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program. This honor ranks them among the top less than 1% of U. S. high school seniors. They now have the opportunity to continue in the competition for Merit Scholarships to be awarded this spring.
