Congratulations to senior Patrick “Patch” Glennan, who was chosen as a National Merit Scholarship Finalist, one of only a select few in New Jersey and the entire U.S.to achieve this recognition.

Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the selections of the finalists in the 63rd Annual National Merit Scholarship in early February 2018.

Patch is among a select group of academically talented high school seniors who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships worth more than $32 million that will be offered this spring.

Patch is the son of Robert and Susan Glennan of Mantua. The GCHS senior is involved in numerous activities at Gloucester Catholic. He is a member of the National Honor Society, the Forensics Team and the Cross Country team among his many activities. In 2017 he represented Gloucester Catholic and the Diocese of Camden at the National Catholic Forensics League’s Grand Nationals in Sacramento, California, and he hopes to make a return visit to the Nationals this spring.

Patch is also an accomplished fiddler and has performed during numerous events at Gloucester Catholic and around the region.

He is a 2014 graduate of Gloucester Catholic Junior High School prior to enrolling at GCHS.
