Maggie Byers, daughter of Christopher and Becky Byers, a senior at Big Spring High School, has qualified as a semifinalist in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. Maggie is one of approximately 16,000 high school seniors who have qualified as semifinalists, and has the opportunity to continue in the competition for approximately 7,600 National Merit Scholarships that will be offered next spring. Maggie has not decided where she would like to attend college, but is currently applying to a number of prestigious schools, including Dickinson, Pittsburgh, and Yale. Her areas of interest include Mathematics, Environmental Science, and Computer Science. Big Spring has had students qualify for this scholarship in the past, and are honored by each and every one. As a district, we are very proud and wish Maggie much luck in the competition.
