Cadet Major Kyle Kozlowski of Trinity High School Hillers Battalion:
National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalist:
The Cadre and Cadets of Trinity High School Hillers Battalion are proud to announce that one of our own, Cadet Major Kyle Kozlowski has been recognized as a National Merit Scholarship Semi-finalist! Cadet Kozlowski is in his second year of AJROTC currently serving as the Hillers Battalion Executive Officer.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test—a test which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.5 million entrants each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.
Of the 1.5 million entrants, some 50,000 with the highest PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index scores (critical reading + mathematics + writing skills scores) qualify for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program. In early September, about 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, are notified that they have qualified as Semifinalists. In February, some 15,000 Semifinalists will be notified by mail at their home addresses that they have advanced to Finalist standing.
Cadet Kozlowski’s awards include: AP Scholar with Distinction, 2014 Samsung American Legion Scholarship recipient, Science Olympiad Medalist for the 2012-2014 school years, Challenge Program Academic Excellence Award in 2013, The 2013 United States Achievement Academy National Mathematics’ Award and the Pennsylvania National Guard Scholastic Achievement Award in 2013.
His extracurricular activities include academic, school and physical events. Academically he is a member of the Varsity Academic League, the Math League and the Westinghouse Science Institute to name a few. In school he is a 2014 Senior School Board representative, a National Honor Society member since 2013, a 2013 Peer Jury member serving as the Foreman since 2014.
