IRVINGTON, N.Y. -- Irvington High School seniors George Adams, Zachary Gallin and Sweta Narayan have been named semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship Program.

They are among 16,000 semifinalists in contention for about 7,400 scholarships worth more than $32 million and available in the spring.

Students with the highest scores on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test were chosen to advance to the semifinals. In order to advance to the finals, Adams, Gallin and Narayan must submit an application in which they provide information about their academic record, participation in school and community activities, leadership abilities, employment and any honors and awards they’ve received.

“George, Zachary and Sweta are each very high academic performers and take many of our offered Advanced Placement classes,” said Irvington High School Principal David Cohen in a press release.

Besides academics, the three also are involved in other aspects of the school.

Narayan is a member of the Science Research Program and the music performance program at the high school.

Gallin is a member of the boys' track team and the recipient of a prestigious scholarship award given as part of the Experiment in International Living Leadership.

Adams also is a member of the boys' track team and performs with the school’s theater production program. In addition, he is the recipient of an Innovation Fund Grant, a program that allows him to teach local history to Irvington elementary students.

The finalists will be announced in February, while the eventual scholarship winners will be announced in the spring.
