Fryeburg Academy Students Among Top Performers in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program

Fryeburg Academy is pleased to announce that May Ki-ok “May” Shin has been named a Semifinalist in the
National Merit Scholarship Program, and Kyungyoon “Yuna” Lee has been named a Commended
Student. High school juniors entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021
Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). According to the College
Board, more than 2 million students took the PSAT in 2021; both young women placed among the top
50,000 takers of this test.
Shin is part of a nationwide pool of 16,000 Semifinalists that represents less than one percent of U.S. high
school seniors and that includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. She has the opportunity to advance to the Finalist level and compete to receive a National Merit Scholarship.

Lee will not continue in the 2023 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, but she is one of 34,000
Commended Students throughout the nation being thus recognized for exceptional academic promise.

Shin is the daughter of Sunkyung Hwang and Kiseub Shin, and Lee is the daughter of Hyosook Chung and
Byungirl Lee. Both young women are from South Korea and attend Fryeburg Academy as part of its boarding
program.
