Alice Cai is a National Merit Finalist!

Senior Alice Cai was in Science Research on February 21 when a call came from the Counseling Center, asking her to come to their office. When she arrived, Dr. Steven Siciliano, principal of John Jay, and Marisa Merlino, director of guidance and counseling, shared exciting news. “Congratulations! You are a National Merit Scholarship Program Finalist!” said Dr. Siciliano.
