We are proud of senior Alexander Y. ’19 for being named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. Commended Students are recognized for the exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the qualifying test.

About 34,000 high performers are named Commended Students based on a national Selection Index score of 212, applicable to all program participants. Although they will not continue on in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship Awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test last October.

Congrats, Red-Tailed Hawk!
