Three Charleston County School District (CCSD) students earned $2,500 National Merit Scholarships from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) this year. All three recipients of the NMSC’s 2021 $2,500 scholarships are from Academic Magnet High School: Lydia R. Cox, Brendan P. Elliott, and Ethan A. Ouellette. They are part of the second wave of winners in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Five students from the district learned last month they are receiving corporate-sponsored scholarships.
The 2,500 Merit Scholar designees were chosen from a talent pool of more than 16,000 outstanding finalists in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program.
