El Paso High senior named National Merit Scholarship semifinalist

The prestigious and competitive National Merit Scholarship Corporation has named its list of semifinalists and an El Paso High Tiger is among the students selected.

Isabella Morales is one of 16,000 National Merit semifinalists in the country, and one of only five El Pasoans who made the cut.

“It’s exciting,” said Morales, a senior who currently is ranked second in her class. “I worked really hard for it, so I was really happy to get the news.”

Semifinalists compete for one of 7,600 scholarships worth more than $31 million.

Morales is EPISD’s only semifinalist and she hopes to use her potential scholarship to attend Columbia University in New York City next fall.

The announcement of finalists will be made in the spring.
