Last week, nearly four dozen high school seniors in the Tucson area were named 2018 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists. These students now have the opportunity to compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $32 million, that will be offered in the spring of 2018. Among the students recognized is Peyton Lewis, a senior at Salpointe, who graduated from St. Michael’s in 2014. Peyton was awarded the Outstanding Student Award from SMA, recognizing the highest grade point average for the graduating eighth grader. We are so proud of our alumni and their achievements in high school and beyond.
