CHS Senior Elizabeth Ablondi has been named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Ablondi, one of about 34,000 students nationwide to be recognized for her academic promise with this honor, placed among the top 50,000 scorers on the 2017 PSAT. More than 1.6 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.”
Ablondi’s class schedule this year includes all Advanced Placement classes except for her athletic period. She is a member of the CHS Dance team.
Conway High School Principal Buck Bing says Ablondi is an outstanding representative of the Class of 2019.
“We are all extremely proud of the accomplishments of Ms. Elizabeth Anne Ablondi,” says Bing. “She takes her academic achievement very seriously, and is still committed to contributing and making the extracurricular activities she’s involved in one of the state’s best. Ms. Ablondi is one of those students who no matter the day or time is always seen with a smile on her face and exhibiting a great attitude and effort.”
