Four Students Earn Commended Student Designation
The district is pleased to announce that a total of four seniors from both MacArthur High School and Division Avenue High School have been named Commended Students in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Competition.
Yingyue "Maggie" Liu and Kristen Papach from MacArthur High School and Khushi Desai and Jack Stanley from Division Avenue High School were recognized based on their PSAT/NMSQT exam score.
The students showed outstanding academic promise and as a result, are among 34,000 of the 50,000 high scorers to receive Letters of Commendation. Although students with this title do not continue on in the competition for National Merit Scholarships, some become candidates for Special Scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.
The district is extremely proud of these students and congratulates them on this outstanding accomplishment.
