Today officials of the (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 students in the 66th annual National Merit Scholarship Program.

Le Roy Central School District proudly announces that Le Roy Jr.-Sr. High School senior Andrew "AJ" Schmidt (inset photo, left) has been named a Semifinalist in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Competition!

These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for more than 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $30 million that will be offered next spring.

More than 1.5 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program entrants.

Nationwide, the pool of semifinalists represents less then 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors, and it includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.

"I am speechless, all of my hard work has led up to this point!" AJ said. "I am very honored to be in this position."

To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. Over 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.

"AJ does an outstanding job both in the classroom and the school community," said Jay Laitenberger, AJ's AP U.S. History teacher/coach. "He always puts his best effort into everything he does and it shows in all aspects.

"It is a true privilege to work with a student-athlete like AJ and see him grow throughout the year. It was a lot of fun to see him take on the challenge of cross-country and track last year and excelling in it as well."

Austin Dwyer, Le Roy Jr.-Sr. High School counselor, said "I could not be more proud of AJ for being selected as a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist and could not think of anyone more deserving of such an honorable recognition. AJ's success in the classroom is a pure reflection of his work ethic and desire to achieve at an exceptionally high level.

"His passion to discover and continuously learn new things is inspiring to not only his peers, but also the adults in our building. It is a privilege to serve as his high school counselor and I am so excited to see what the future holds for him.

Tim McArdle, principal Le Roy Jr.-Sr. High School, said "We are so proud of AJ as he continues to excel and reach new heights. His work ethic and attention to detail are remarkable both in the classroom and beyond.

"AJ is an amazing Knight who continues to challenge himself both in and out of the classroom. We cannot wait to see what life has in store for him!"

The annual awards recognize exemplary development programs in public, private and independent colleges, universities and schools. 

The winners in the following four categories were determined through a blind review of data submitted by member institutions over three years to the CASE AMAtlas Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) survey:

  • Overall Performance: For colleges and universities that show solid program growth, breadth in the base of support, and other indications of a mature, well-maintained program. 
  • Overall Improvement: For colleges and universities that demonstrate significant program growth across the three years of data. 
  • Award of Excellence: For independent schools that demonstrate solid program growth, breadth in the base of support, and other indicators of an exemplary fundraising program.
  • Sustained Excellence: Recognize institutions that have demonstrated consistent fundraising success over a five-year period.

GCC was among 32 institutions to be a first-time honoree in the Overall Performance Category, and also one of just seven community colleges recognized.

Winners are not selected solely on total funds raised. Rather, a committee of experienced fundraisers review hundreds of pages of data from the VSE survey and consider a number of factors and variables, including: 

  • Patterns of growth in total support;
  • Evaluation of what contributed to the total support figure; 
  • Overall breadth of fundraising; 
  • Patterns of growth in gifts from sources including alumni and other individuals, corporations and foundations; 
  • Impact of the 12 largest gifts on total support; 
  • Giving to areas such as current operations, endowment and property/buildings; 
  • Amount raised per student; 
  • Amount raised relative to expenditures; 
  • Alumni participation. 

"GCC is excited and thankful to receive this wonderful honor from CASE," said Justin M. Johnston, GCC's vice president of Development and External Affairs and the executive director of the GCC Foundation. This award is a testament to all of our donors who make our work possible through their generous support of our students and programs.

"Our staff, our college leadership and our foundation leadership sincerely appreciate this recognition. Adding another level of importance for us, this honor was made possible as well by the leadership of our late colleague, Rick Ensman. Rick was a seasoned fundraiser who had nearly thirty years of experience at GCC when he passed away last year.

"I am thankful for the opportunity to spotlight the contributions of so many devoted donors, staff members, and volunteers of the College and the Foundation, who work to collectively support our students."

CASE member institutions that have participated in the VSE for the past three years are considered for the honor.
