September 14, 2012 – Don Bosco Prep is pleased to announce that Corey Meyer has been recognized as National Merit Semifinalist and eight Don Bosco Prep students have been recognized as National Merit Commended Students in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program.
National Merit Semifinalist
About 1.5 million juniors in some 22,000 high schools entered the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2010 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQTt®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, which represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,300 National Merit Scholarships worth more than $34 million that will be offered in the spring.
National Merit Commended Students
About 34,000 commended students throughout the nation are recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Commended students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2013 competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSGT). The Don Bosco Prep students named as National Merit Commended Students are:
Michael Q. Gaffey, Anthony Gallo, Michael Leone, Robert E. Matts, Brendan Mullen, Anthony G. Orosz, Kevin Sheehy, and Michael W. Sielski
Don Bosco Prep is proud of the achievements of these students and congratulates them along with their families and the faculty for their contributions to the successes of these young men.
