Lenox High School National Merit Commended Students

Congratulations to Joseph Bouvier, Sophia Cahillane, Cole Charbonneau, Connor Parkinson and Elias Williams for being named a Commended Student in the 2017 National Merit Program. This past month, the top 2% of students (about 34,000) of the approximately 1.6 million test takers on the PSAT/NMSQT® receive Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise. Commended Students are named on the basis of a nationally applied Selection Index score that may vary from year to year and is typically below the level required for participants to be named Semifinalists in their respective states. Although Commended Students do not continue in the competition for National Merit® Scholarships, some of these students do become candidates for Special Scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.
