Students from Gwinnett named National Merit Scholarship recipients

Fifteen students from Gwinnett have been named National Merit Scholarship recipients.

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation released the names of six students from across Georgia who received scholarships funded by the corporation itself this week. This comes on the heels of a list Gwinnett County Public Schools released of nine students who received National Merit Scholarships that were sponsored by businesses.

There were more than 15,000 finalists for National Merit Scholarships, and only 2,500 students were chosen to receive them.
