Northport High School senior Julianne Starzee has been selected to receive a National Merit Scholarship. Students selected for this scholarship are recognized for having a strong combination of skills, accomplishments and potential for success in pursuing higher education, and were selected by a committee composed of high school counselors and admissions officers.

Julianne was awarded by the National Merit Scholar organization with a $2,500 scholarship. Only 2,500 students from a pool of 15,000 outstanding finalists were selected for this award. Julianne plans on going into the field of physics in college.

“In a field where women are terribly underrepresented, it is so refreshing to see a student with such tremendous potential being recognized for her hard work,” said Principal Daniel Danbusky. “Northport High School is very proud of Julianne.”
