Highlands Latin School would like to congratulate four HLS Class of 2018 seniors being recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their scores on the 2016 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Congratulations to Semifinalist Matthew Rouse and to Commended Students Katelyn Miller, Helen Mariah Murdoch, and Maggie Roy.

These four seniors join the ranks of many HLS alumni who have achieved the same honors, helping keep Highlands Latin at the top of Louisville academics.

Over the last 10 years, HLS has had the highest percentage of National Merit Scholars from Louisville schools. Congratulations again to these outstanding students.
