Two WHS Seniors Earn Award

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2016 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 competition by taking the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

“Recognition of high-achieving students is essential to advancing educational excellence in our nation,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC.  “As demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program, the young men and women named Commended Students represent some of the best and brightest minds in our country.  We sincerely hope this recognition will enhance their educational opportunities and encourage them in their pursuit of academic success.”
