TABC Students Earn High Recognition From National Merit Scholarship Program

TABC is proud to announce that almost 10% of the senior class has been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program either as a merit semi-finalist or as commended students. Senior Akiva Sturm was named a National Merit Scholar semi-finalist this year. This outstanding achievement ranks TABC among the top yeshivot in the tri-state area in National Merit recognition. Sturm will have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,400 National Merit Scholarships, worth more than $32 million, that will be offered next spring.

Of the over 1.6 million students who entered the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, eight TABC students, received selection index numbers that were among the top 50,000. Their accomplishment is particularly notable because the State of New Jersey has higher threshold to become a merit semi-finalist than any other state in the country. TABC is proud that so many students have received the academic preparation and challenge to reach this high level. Those commended are Avraham Davis, Uri Garfunkel, Jonathan Haberman, Avraham Kahan, Jacob Lerer, Eli Rifkind, Yonatan Stewart and Nathanael Vinar.
