Davidson senior named National Merit Scholar finalist

Song Ting Tang, a senior at John S. Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School, has been named a finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.

Tang is the only student in Richmond County to achieve this status in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Less than one percent of students who took the PSAT in Fall 2021 were named a National Merit Finalist.

Tang competed against more than 16,000 semifinalists to be named a National Merit Finalist by submitting an essay, letters of recommendation, SAT scores, transcripts and documentation of school involvement and community service. 

National Merit Finalists are eligible for corporate and college-sponsored scholarships.
