Hampton High School seniors Grace Kang and Tejas Badgujar have been named 2019 National Merit Scholarship winners.

Grace was awarded the National Merit PPG Foundation Scholarship, financed by PPG in Pittsburgh. Scholarships are awarded to exceptionally-able young men and women who are residents of selected communities where PPG maintains manufacturing or distribution operations, or who are children of PPG employees.

Tejas was awarded the National Merit Emerson Electric Co. Scholarship, funded by Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, Inc. The scholarship is awarded to outstanding sons and daughters of Emerson employees.

Both Grace and Tejas have indicated they intend to pursue higher education in computer science upon graduation from Hampton in June.

More than 1.6 million juniors in approximately 22,000 high schools entered the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program when they took the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test , which served as an initial screen of program entrants.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
