I am honored to be named a finalist, Erlick released in a statement.
According to the school, Erlick hopes to attend a college or university that is similar to the culture and experience of Holy Child where she will find diverse friends, inspirational teachers and tremendous academic rigor and opportunity.
Erlick, who was one of 15,000 finalists nationwide, hopes to be one of the 8,400 finalists selected in the National Merit Scholars Program.
