Luxemburg-Casco senior Samantha Kahr is one of less than one percent of high school seniors in the country that has been named a semi-finalist in the 67th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. The honor recognizes individual students who have shown exceptional academic ability and success in rigorous college studies. Kahr says she wants to study biomedical engineering with a specialization in biomechanics at either University Of Wisconsin-Madison or Marquette University. She shares how she found out about being selected as a semi-finalist.
Kahr will have the opportunity to advance to the finalist level which will be designated in February 2022. Nearly $30 million worth of National Merit Scholarships will be offered next spring to some 7,500 scholars nationwide. Kahr is the daughter of Kyle and Karla Kahr of Luxemburg.
