CCHS senior Ryan Devanandan has been named a winner in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program of about 1.6 million student who entered the contest.

Of the 1.6 million entrants, only about 16,000 (1.0%) were named Semifinalists. They were designated on a state representational basis, in proportion to each state's percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors. In order to advance in the competition and be considered for a Merit Scholarship Award, Ryan had to become a Finalist by fulfilling several requirements that included submitting a detailed scholarship application and presenting a record of very high academic performance. Ryan, along with the other winners of about 7,500 (0.47%) National Merit Scholarships, are being chosen from the group of approximately 15,000 distinguished Finalists.
