Two ConVal High School students, Katherine Craig and Rachel Stajduhar, have been named Commended Students for the National Merit Scholarship program based on their performance on the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSC) they took as juniors.
Craig and Stajduhar received commendation letters from the National Merit Scholarship program recognizing their high-scoring achievement among 1,500,000 student entrants nationwide. “I want to extend a big congratulations to these incredible students,” said Principal McKillop. “I am proud of their hard work and dedication and I am excited to see all that they will continue to accomplish.”
“These students have achieved academic excellence and we are honored to have them as a part of our school community,” said Superintendent Rizzo Saunders. “They should be proud to achieve this recognition from such a distinguished organization as the National Merit Scholarship program.”
U.S. high school students who take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) this year and meet other program requirements will enter the 2024 competition
for National Merit Scholarship Program recognition and scholarships. Nearly all program participants will be juniors who plan to enter college in the fall of 2024.
PSAT testing at ConVal High School will take place next week, on October 12, 2022.
