Savannah Smith '22 Named National Merit Scholar and Academic All-American

Heathwood senior Savannah Smith has earned two significant national honors: she is both a 2022 National Merit Scholar and an Academic All-American in girls lacrosse. 

Savannah is one of 32 high school seniors in South Carolina to earn the prestigious National Merit Scholarship from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Students are selected based on their scores on the PSAT, their grades and the rigor of their coursework, their contributions and leadership in school and community activities, and recommendations from the school.

Only eight students statewide were named Academic All Americans in girls lacrosse. Savannah earned that designation through outstanding performance both on the field and in the classroom.

In the fall, Savannah will attend North Carolina State University, where she is enrolled in the Honors College.
