Peter Luljak ’19 and Ollie Thakar ’19 Win National Merit Scholarships


Congratulations to our two Park seniors selected as National Merit Scholarship Winners, Peter Luljak and Ollie Thakar! The National Merit Scholarship Program began in 1955 as an academic competition for recognition and scholarships. Each year, approximately 1.6 million high school students enter the program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Winners are chosen based on their abilities, skills, and accomplishments.

Peter and Ollie are among the approximately 7,500 finalists who were selected to receive Merit Scholarships. Peter will attend Harvey Mudd College in the fall and Ollie will attend Princeton University.
