John P. Pascale, Principal of Mahwah High School, announced that the following students have been named Commended Students in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program: Rebecca Damante, Dong Hyun Kim, Ethan Meyers, Michael Wierzbicki, Mara Zalite, Alyson Burns, and Christopher Baldi.
Approximately 34,000 Commended Students in the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2013 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2013 competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary Sat/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
“Recognition of high-achieving students is essential to advancing education 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 most academically talented students in our country. We sincerely hope this recognition will enhance their educational opportunities and encourage them in their pursuit of academic success.”
