Principal's Message

            Mr. Rick Lopez, principal, announced today that three Valencia seniors:

Benjamin Liu, Jennifer Pi, and Kenneth Tsai have earned qualifying scores on the October 2013 PSAT test for the honor of Semifinalist in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. Students enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT) in the fall of their junior year.  The National Merit Corporation names 16,000 Semifinalists representing the top ½% of the 1.5 million-program entrants.  Representing less than one percent of each states high school seniors, National Merit Semifinalists are the highest-scoring program entrants in each state. Qualifying scholars have the opportunity to advance to the actual cash awards given as Merit Scholarships by the universities they ultimately attend.

 In addition, seniors Jeremy Powell and Noelle Schorn earned qualifying scores for the National Hispanic Recognition Program and senior Kara Turner earned a qualifying score for the National Achievement Scholarship Program.

 Thirty additional students; Kang An, Urmi Bhaumik, Dakota Bishop, Jack D’Aquila, Ju Han, Yuri Ho, Aaron Kang, Jason Kim, Austin Lee, Emily Lee, Heather Lim, Egbert Lin, Alan Mangosong, Zachary May, Kaitlin Mcfarland, Apurva Mody, Mitchel Pham, Jinnie Rhee, Madelyn Rychlik, Noelle Schorn, Samantha Siu, Minkyu Sohn, Annie Truong, Kara Turner, Alexandru Vajiac, Lucy Womack, Clarabel Wu, Terry Yau, Joseph Yen, and Taylor Youngquist earned qualify scores for the 2015 National Merit Commended Student Program.  Commended Students placed in the top 5% of the 1.5 million entrants in the National Merit Scholarship Program.

             We are very proud of our students and their achievements. We are also proud of our teachers and staff and the role they have played in the development of the outstanding academic program here at Valencia High School.
