EVSC Students Honored as ‘Commended Students’ by National Merit Scholarship Program


Four EVSC seniors have been named a “Commended Student” by the National Merit Scholarship Program due to their exceptional academic promise. The following students in the EVSC have received the honor and were recognized as being among the top five percent of students in the nation:

• Caleb Kerr, North High School
• Ellen Kendall, North High School
• Shelly Stumpf, Reitz High School
• Jacob Weinzapfel, Reitz High School

High school students across the country receive the Commended Student distinction based upon scores from the 2008 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT)
Although Commended Students do not continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships, some of these students do become candidates for special scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.
