Ezell-Harding Christian School announces that Abigail Cothron and Natalie Schutz have been named Commended Scholars in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.
A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program, will be presented to these scholastically talented seniors on Awards Day in the spring.
Abigail and Natalie are among about 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation that are being recognized for their exceptional academics; these students placed among the top 50,000 scorers out of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
Our 2017-18 juniors will be taking this qualifying test in just a few weeks on October 11.
A spokesperson for NMSC commented, “The young men and women being named have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success. These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key roll their schools play in their academic developments, 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.”
Ezell-Harding is one of very few schools that can boast National Merit Finalists, Commended Scholars, or Achievement Scholars every year since the school opened. We congratulate parents, Lee and Kathy Cothron and Mark and Lisa Schutz, as well as our Ezell-Harding teachers for encouraging these young women on their road to one of the highest academic honors in the nation!
Congratulations to Abigail and Natalie!!
