Carly Grossman, an East Hampton High School senior, was named a National Merit 2014 Scholarship semi-finalist.

According to school officials, she is the only student to receive the honor on the South Fork.

Principal Adam Fine said only 16,000 students of the 1.5 million juniors who take the PSATs are selected as semi-finalists. A total of 1,020 students took the test in the state.

Semi-finalists are competing for 8,000 National Merit Scholarships worth about $35 million, which will be handed out next spring. About 90 percent of the semi-finalists are expected to become finalists, with more than half earning the scholarships, according to the National Merit Scholarship Program.

Carly's parents are Johnny Grossman and Tracy Grossman, of East Hampton.

We also hear that Carly is president of her class and on the varsity tennis team.

One student from Mattituck High School, and another from Bishop Mercy-McGann in Riverhead were also named National Merit 2014 Scholarship semi-finalists.

Congratulations to Carly! Leave a comment below to wish her the the best of luck.
