BA graduate Kyle Bergwall honored in final round of National Merit Scholars Program

Broken Arrow High School graduate Kyle Bergwall was recently honored in the fourth and final round of the National Merit Scholars Program for his prestigious academic accomplishments. Bergwall was selected as one of 7,500 students to receive a scholarship award, which includes National Merit Scholarships as well as corporate- and college-sponsored scholarships.

“We are so incredibly proud of Kyle and all of our National Merit Finalists,” Broken Arrow High School Principal Crystal Barber said.

Established in 1955, the National Merit Scholarship Program is a long-standing academic competition for recognition and scholarships. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which serves as an initial screen of nearly 1.5 million entrants each year.

In September 2021, Kyle Bergwall was named a National Merit Semifinalist alongside eight other BAHS students. Semifinalists are among 16,000 students from across the nation who qualified and are considered the highest scoring entrants in each state.

In February, Bergwall was chosen as one of 15,000 National Merit Finalists, and most recently, received the scholarship award.

“The grit, determination and commitment it takes to receive this prestigious scholarship and honor is something to be admired,” Barber said.
