Six students are commended
Six Westerville City Schools pupils have been named Commended Students in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program.
They are Kevin Adik, Westerville Central High School; Mark Grady, David Nield and Brian Young, Westerville North; and Allison McMurray and Gina Paganini, Westerville South.
A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by their principals to the seniors.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional promise.
Although they will not continue in the 2014 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2014 competition by taking the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
