Mia Cortés Castro Named 2022 National Merit Winner

(Evanston, Illinois) Today, National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®) announced this year's National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners. TASIS Dorado is proud to congratulate MIA CORTÉS CASTRO, Class of 2022, for being selected as a 2022 National Merit Scholarship winner!

Mia was chosen from 15,000 outstanding finalists and will receive a scholarship. 2,500 Merit Scholar designees were selected from a talent pool of more than 15,000 outstanding Finalists in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. National Merit $2500 Scholarship winners are the Finalists in each state judged to have the strongest combination of accomplishments, skills, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.

These Scholars were selected by a committee of college admissions officers and high school counselors, who appraised a substantial amount of information submitted by both the Finalists and their high schools: the academic record, including difficulty level of subjects studied and grades earned; scores from the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®); contributions and leadership in school and community activities; an essay written by the Finalist; and a recommendation written by a high school official.

Mia will attend Yale University next fall to major in English with a concentration in Journalism and Creative Writing. This honor is the latest in a long line of previous achievements for Mia:
• AP Scholar with Distinction
• U.S. Presidential Scholar Semifinalist
• National Hispanic Scholar
• Girl Scout Ambassador, Bronze Medal Award recipient, and Gold Medal Award Candidate

Congratulations, Mia! We're so proud of you!
