National Merit Scholarship Commended Students

The principal, Sandra Galinzoga, of Floresville High School announced today that Elizabeth B. Eckert has been named a commended student in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. A letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.

About 34,000 commended students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2015 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2015  competition by taking the 2013 preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

“The young men and woman being named commended students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable national 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 is recognition will help broaden their educational opportunity and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success”
