WESTPORT, Conn. -- Thirteen students from Staples High School in Westport were named semifinalists for the National Merit Scholarship.

Jake Atlas, Kyle Baer, Shelby Cataldo, Zachary Effman, Claudia Landowne, Emma Lupoff, Abigail Lustig, Nicholas Massoud, Ian Palmer, Kelly Pogue, Megan Root, Everett Sussman and William Vester are competing for 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $33 million.

“Because I spend so many hours each week with our students, I know how talented and hard-working they are,” Principal John Dodig said in a statement. “Some of the public, however, needs a metric to judge just how well-prepared are students are. The National Merit Scholarship Program is such a metric."
