BHS student named ‘commended’ Merit Scholar
Bainbridge High School principal Tommie Howell announced recently that Anne Reynolds has been named a “Commended Student” in the 2012 National Merit Scholarship Program.
A letter of commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this student.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation will be recognized for their academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2012 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2012 competition by taking the 2010 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said an NMSC spokesperson. “These students represent a valuable natural 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.”
