Four BHS Seniors Named National Merit Semifinalists!

We are so excited to announce that Biloxi High School has four National Merit Semifinalists! Congratulations to Ashton Boudreaux, Priscilla Foster, Madeline Pitre and Ann Lauren Schmidt!

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $30 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 95 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and approximately half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.
