Five Lubbock ISD Students Named as National Merit Semifinalists


Five Lubbock ISD students have been named as National Merit Semifinalists.

Lubbock ISD outpaced other school districts in the region including Abilene, Amarillo, Midland, Odessa, and San Angelo.

Of the approximately 1.5 million students taking the qualifying exam nationwide, LISD is the only public school district in Lubbock County with any students earning the prestigious distinction.

The semifinalists, all from Lubbock High School, are David Chen, Kalhan Koul, Rachel Smith, Reagan Stuart, and Avianna Vyff.

“We are so proud of these students, their families and their past and current teachers,” said Doyle Vogler, Associate Superintendent for Secondary Schools.

Vogler continued, saying “Being in the top one-percent of academic achievement is a significant accomplishment and one that will open many doors as colleges and universities work to recruit these students.”

LISD Superintendent Berhl Robertson, Jr. weighed in, saying, “These students have accomplished a significant milestone in their academic careers by being named to this elite list. We are proud that Lubbock ISD has played a role in their education.”

Less than one percent of high school seniors can claim the designation of National Merit Semifinalist.
