Thomas Nimon '20 Named National Merit Semifinalist

Baylor senior Thomas Nimon has been named a semifinalist in the 65th National Merit Scholarship Program by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, joining an elite group of over 80 Baylor students named National Merit semifinalists since 2007.

Nimon was chosen based on his performance, as a junior, on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) that placed him among the 16,000 highest scorers nationwide of the 1.6 million students who took the test, which evaluates critical reading, math, and writing skills. Nimon will have the opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,600 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring.

A member of Round Table, Red Circle, Raiders Against Prejudice (RAP), the Mountain Biking Club, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Nimon participates in Model UN, community service, and Walkabout.
