219 Plano ISD Students Recognized through National Merit Scholarship Commended Program

September 30, 2016

Among 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation, 219 Plano ISD seniors are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, these Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

"These young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. "These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
