Submitted by Amy Shaffer, Student Activities/Career Center Coordinator, Hall High School

Dan Zittoun, Principal of William H. Hall High School, announced the 17 students who have been named Commended Students in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. 

These recipients are: Kenda Alkadry, Carolyn Alquist, Andrew Cheng, Sari Eisen, Jack Haddad, Maeve Healy, Aileen Li, Olivia Norton, William Schoen, Sophia Shaughnessy, Jordan Shefsky, Tobias Siegel, Eli Stevens, Leo Sullivan, Andrew Sun, George Townswick, and Lily Zhang.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2021 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scores of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2021 competition by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

“Those 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 this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
