A Carnation student attending Eastside Catholic School is one of six seniors at the school to be named National Merit Commended Students. Henry Maxon of Carnation qualified for the honor, along with five other classmates, Rosalie Didcock, Anthony Schmidt and Dane Williams of Sammamish, Johann Fernando of Woodinville and Katherine Roberts of Bellevue.
In addition, two Eastside Catholic seniors, Lillian Didcock and Serena Gilani, both of Sammamish, were named National Merit Semifinalists, which qualified them to compete for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth approximately $32 million.
Interim High School Principal Polly Skinner praised the students for their accomplishments. “Lillian Didcock and Serena Gilani are outstanding students and hardworking young women who manifest our Touchstones and all they stand for. We are extremely proud of them.”
