NBTHS CONGRATULATES COMMENDED STUDENTS IN THE 2017 NATIONAL MERIT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Mr. Joseph P. Clark, Principal of North Brunswick Township High School and Mr. Kevin P. Farrell, NBTHS Director of Guidance, announced today that four students have been named Commended Students in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. Letters of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, was presented to our scholastically talented seniors.
As a point of reference, about 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 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,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “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.”
NBTHS is proud to congratulate the following students:
