Patrick, whose family resides in Mantua, NJ, is the son of Robert and Susan Glennan.  He is involved in numerous activities at Gloucester Catholic, including the Forensic League, the National Honor Society, and cross country. Patrick is among a select group of academically talented high school seniors who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered next spring.

About 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.

National Merit Scholarship winners of 2018 will be announced beginning in April and concluding in July. These scholarship recipients will join more than 330,000 other distinguished young people who have earned the Merit Scholar title.
