Ursuline Academy of Dallas celebrated its four National Merit Semifinalists last week.

The school profiled the four students and provided these details:

Sarah Hui

Clubs/Interests: Newspaper, Cross Country, SRO Supper Club, Ambassadors, Global Advisory Council

“I want to double major in English and International Studies. English, because I love to think and really enjoy studying humanity through our stories. International Studies, because our more-global-than-ever society fascinates me.”

Lauren Montigue

Clubs/Interests: Cross Country and Champions League, a program with the YMCA that promotes community and healthy living for kids with special needs

“I want to major in Environmental Engineering. I see engineering as a bridge from scientific knowledge to real-world improvements and believe the environment will be the defining issue of our generation. I want to be a part of the continuing push for sustainability.”

Cecilia O’Brien

Clubs/Interests: Tri-M Music Honor Society Co-President, Cross Country, violin and volunteering at the Scottish Rite Hospital for senior service

“I plan on studying aerospace or computer engineering. Engineering is interesting to me because I love hands-on problem solving and I want to work with people to make a positive difference in the world.”

Sarah Visokay

Clubs/Interests: SRO Supper Club, swim team, and making regular visits to the Pre-K at St. Rita to do fun experiments with the kids to get them interested in science

“I am not completely sure of my career path, but I am interested in engineering or medicine. At some point, I would love to be a part of Engineers or Doctors Without Borders because I have a deep desire to give back and help others.”
