Twenty-seven Parkway seniors named commended in National Merit Scholarship program

Congratulations to the 27 Parkway seniors named commended students in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program.  Commended students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2012 competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

The students and their schools are:

Central High

More than two-thirds (about 34,000) of the approximately 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT receive letters of commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.  Commended students are named on the basis of a nationally applied selection index score that may vary from year to year and is below the level required for participants to be named semifinalists in their respective states. 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.
