Congratulations to Senior Sage Colvard for being named a Commended Student in the National Merit Scholarship Program.  The goal of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation is to "recognize and honor the academically talented students of the United States."  In order to qualify for this honor, Sage took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test (PSAT/NMSQT) during his junior year.  Over 1.6 million students take the test each year, but only 50,000 of those students receive any kind of recognition.  Sage scored in the upper two-thirds of those 50,000 in the competition, thus earning him the "Commended Student" recognition.


Congratulations, Sage, for these academic accolades!!!
