Three Members of the Class of 2021 Earn National Merit Honors
Seniors Renee Angerer, Isabella Bartholomew, and Clara Conatser have been recognized as National Merit Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. These three Saints are among the nation’s top 16,000 high scorers. In the past four years, twelve StM students have been named semifinalists by the NMSC.

Renee Angerer is the daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. John Angerer of River Ridge. Isabella Bartholomew is the daughter of Dr. Joan Cheng of Metairie and Dr. Bradley Bartholomew of Metairie. Clara Conatser is the daughter of Mr. Kelly Conatser ’79 and Dr. Leslie Blake ’80 of Kenner.

About 1.6 million juniors in 22,000 high schools entered the National Merit Competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. All National Merit Semifinalists have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships, worth about $31 million, that will be offered in the spring.
