Three CHS Seniors have been named Commended Students in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Conway High School Principal Buck Bing presented the letters of commendation on behalf of the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, to Emily Holman, Francesca Redditt, and Allison Tilley Wednesday morning.
The three Conway seniors are among about 34,000 students nationwide to be recognized for their academic promise with this honor, placed among the top 50,000 scorers on the 2018 PSAT. More than 1.5 million students took the test.
The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recognizes these commended students in an effort to broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them in their pursuit of academic success.
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential,” says a National Merit Corporation Spokesman, “These students are vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.”
Conway High School Principal Buck Bing says this is especially true for the three Commended Scholars from the Conway High School Class of 2020..
“The administration, faculty and staff here at CHS are extremely proud of these students,” says Bing. “Their abilities, accomplishments, and work ethic are to be commended. I know I speak for all of their teachers K-12 when I say we proudly congratulate them for this well-deserved recognition.”
