Congratulations to BH-BL High School seniors Madeline Boussa and Nathan Slisher for being named Commended Students in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. They are recognized for their exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the PSAT.
The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. Approximately 1.6 million high school students enter the program each year.
Of those 1.6 million students who took the exam, Boussa and Slisher are among the 34,000 high performers across the United States to be named a Commended Student. Way to go, Spartans!
High School students who meet published program entry and participation requirements enter the National Merit® Scholarship Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®) at the specified time in the high school program, usually as juniors. Each year’s PSAT/NMSQT is the qualifying test designated for entry to a particular year’s competition.
