According to a press release, a letter of commendation “from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, has been presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.”

“About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized,” according to the release. “Although they will not continue in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top three percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).”

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” NMSC officials said. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
