20 IHS Seniors Named Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program

In recognition of their exceptional academic promise, 20 seniors from Ithaca High School have been named Commended Students in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Although they will not continue in the 2020 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2020 competition by taking the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said a spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. “These students represent a valuable resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Congratulations to Our 2020 National Merit Scholarship Commended Students!
