Caroline Riffle A Commended National Merit Scholar

ConVal High School announced today that senior Caroline Riffle has been named a Commended Student in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program.

A Letter of Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, was presented by the school counseling director to this talented senior.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

Caroline is the daughter of Gary and Monica Riffle of Peterborough.
