Two El Paso ISD Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists

Two El Paso Independent School District high-school seniors earlier this week were included in the elite list of National Merit Scholar semifinalists for 2018.

Coronado High School’s Daven Cheu and Franklin High School’s Mauricio Gonzalez were among the five El Paso County students who made the list published by the National Merit Scholar Corp.

Both Gonzalez and Cheu have big plans for college and were mostly surprised by the honor.

“It’s going to be a great opportunity to help me to go to the college I want to go to,” said Cheu, an IB student considering a major in environmental systems at the University of California at San Diego. “I didn’t quite expect to be here. I have to get the paperwork sorted out and then find out what happens next.”

Gonzalez knows being a semifinalist will look good on his resume when he applies to Yale University, his top choice for now.

“It’s a pretty big honor,” he said. “I know there are a lot of students who compete and to be one of three from EPISD is pretty big. I’m just happy to represent El Paso and EPISD. I hope I move on further and win a scholarship.”

The corporation also named former Chapin High School student Connor Jarolimek as a semifinalist. Jarolimek was a student at Chapin when he took the qualifying PSAT test, but has since moved out of state.

National Merit will notify students advancing to finalists.
