The six young men are Miguel Naguit, Benjamin Kowalski, Alexander Laney, Michael McNamara, Patrick Schlembach, and Daniel Williams.


According to teacher John Orozco, Miguel is president of the L.A.S.S.O. Club (Latin American Student Support Organization) and a Big Brother to freshmen. He is involved in football, track, and Campus Ministry.  He is active in student government, serving as a student rep.

Miguel is the son of Dr. Cornelia Naguit and Dr. María Naguit.


In all, eight St. Francis de Sales seniors have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program—all have demonstrated outstanding academic potential by their strong performance in this highly competitive program.


In addition to the six mentioned above, two have achieved the highest honor as National Merit Semi-finalists.
