National Merit Names 7 EVSC Students as "Commended Students"
Seven EVSC seniors have been named a Commended Student by the National Merit Scholarship Program due to their exceptional academic promise. The following students in the EVSC have received the honor and were recognized as being among the top five percent of students in the nation:
• Madeline Bogan, Reitz High School
• Laura Chamness, Reitz High School
• Brittany A. Hoover, North High School
• Bailey M. Johnson, North High School
• Taleah Slack, Reitz High School
• Samuel Tadros, Reitz High School
• Tanner L. Vincent, North High School
High school students across the country receive the Commended Student distinction based upon scores from the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT)
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.
