Connersville High School is excited to announce that senior Carson Giesting has been named a 2024 National Merit Semifinalist! Over 1.3 million students across the nation entered the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in the fall of their junior year. Being named a Semifinalist is a recognition of both hard work and academic excellence. This distinction is earned by the top 16,000 students and represents less than 1% of all U.S. high school seniors. This honor is only the first step in the competition; both National Merit Finalists and National Merit Scholarship award winners will be announced next spring and summer.

Congratulations, Carson! Spartan Nation is so proud of you and your hard work!
