Eleven students from the district have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.
From Calhoun High School: David Bekore, Matthew Garber, Julia Losner and Rebecca Unz. From Kennedy High School: Ruth Bergman, Chloe Davis, Rebecca Stekol and Alixandra Wilens. From Mepham High School: Rachel Jozwik, Christopher Rosenthal and Zachary Weiss.
Commended Students placed among the top 5 percent of the country out of more than 1.5 million students who entered the competition by virtue of taking the PSAT last year.
“This is a true testament of these students’ individual ability to tackle a challenging exam and come out on top,” said Superintendent of Schools John DeTommaso.
