More than 20% of the Class of 2013 Recognized for Academic Excellence
More than 20% of the Class of 2013 has received commendation from the National Merit Corporation and the College Board based on their outstanding standardized test scores.
Ten students—-Rebekah Broh-Kahn, Elizabeth Cahn, Melda Gurakar, Carolyn Hruban, Caroline Joy, Katherine Liu, Aidan Lorch-Leibel, Claire Morton, Lucy Roland and Emily Zaremba—-were named National Merit Commended Scholars. To achieve this honor, these students scored in the top 50,000 of the approximately 1.5 million PSAT/NMSQT test-takers nationwide.
Elizabeth Shaya and Sophie Ranen were honored as National Hispanic Scholars. To receive this award, a student must be of Hispanic descent and score in the top 5,000 of the approximately 124,000 Hispanic students nationwide taking the PSAT/NMSQT. Instituted by the College Board in 1983, the goal of the National Hispanic Scholars program is to identify outstanding Hispanic high school students and to share information about these academically well-prepared students with subscribing colleges and universities.
Finally, three students were recognized in the National Achievement Scholarship Program, with Breyuana Heriot and Tate Johnson being named Outstanding Participants and Chinyere Amanze selected as a Semifinalist. This academic competition, which also falls under the aegis of the National Merit Corporation, was established in 1964 to provide recognition for outstanding African American high school students. To qualify for recognition, Heriot, Tate and Amanze scored in the top 2% of all African American students taking the PSAT/NMSQT.
Congratulations to all recognized students on their achievements!
