2021 National Merit Commended Scholars

For the second year in a row, three CHS Seniors have been named Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program. 

The 2021 National Merit Commended Students from Conway High School are Samuel Chessir, Lydia Quinn, and Cade Smiley.

These students received letters of commendation on behalf of the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation this week.

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recognizes these commended students for their outstanding performance in being among the top scorers on the 2019 PSAT, saying the recognition is designed to broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them in their pursuit of academic success.

“The 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 the Conway High School Class of 2021 has strong academic leaders.

“All of us here at CHS are extremely proud of these students,” says Bing. “Even in these unusual times, they represent a tremendous work ethic and a commitment to excellence that sets a good example for all students.”
