The Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics (OSSM) announced today that eight seniors have been named Finalists in the 2022 Competition for National Merit Scholarships. 

The OSSM students are: Jane Gou (Stillwater), Sehee Kim (Enid), Logan Rhyne (Fort Gibson), Oviya Selvakumar (Edmond), Simren Shah (Edmond), Pundit Vorakitolan (Norman), Andrew Youn (Edmond), and David Zheng (Norman).   

Selection as National Merit Semifinalists is based on performance on the PSAT test taken at the beginning of a student’s junior year, the first year of attendance at OSSM. 

“These seniors have accomplished a great deal in a challenging school environment due to the global pandemic,” said Frank Wang, Ph.D., president of OSSM. “We congratulate them and applaud their home high schools. Students take the PSAT shortly after arriving at OSSM, so the schools they come from prepared these students well for this challenging test.”
