National Merit Scholarship Program Commended Students

In late September, more than two-thirds (about 34,000) of the approximately 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT® receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise. Commended Students are named on the basis of a nationally applied Selection Index score that may vary from year to year and is typically below the level required for participants to be named Semifinalists in their respective states. Although Commended Students do not continue in the competition for National Merit® Scholarships, some of these students do become candidates for Special Scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.

We are happy to announce Seaholm’s National Merit Scholarship Commended Students for 2017:

  • Nicholas J. Confer
  • Audrey D. Ladd
  • Emily L. Lonze
  • Mitchell G. Moore
  • Caroline g. Owens
  • Alyssa A. Pascoe
  • Connor J. Sakis
  • David J. Seago
  • Benjamin T. Williams

The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.
