At its Feb. 21, 2019 meeting, the Board of Education honored individual students for their exceptional scholastic achievements in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
The National Merit Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955.
Of the 1.6 million entrants, approximately 50,000 test takers with the highest PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index scores qualify for recognition in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
More than two-thirds of the 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.
One-third of the 50,000 high scorers are notified that they have qualified as semifinalists.
