Chairman Publicity National Scholarship Program Barry Carson Honored Jack Fry, principal, an- nounced today that one senior student at Malakoff High School has achieved Com- mended Student status in the twenty-third annual (1978) National Merit Scholarship Program. This honor is the result of each student's out- standing performance on the Preliminary Scholastic Apti- tude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) which was administered nationwide to high school juniors in October 1976, Letter of Commendation was presented to Barry Car- son. A total of approximately 35,000 Commended students throughout the United States are being honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) which administers the yearly scho- larship competition. Students in this group represent less than two percent of the total of graduating U.S. secondary school seniors. Although these students scored slightly below the level required for Merit Program participants who were named Semifina- lists and who will continue in the competition for Merit Scholarships to be awarded in 1978, each Commended stu- dent has demonstrated excep- tional academic promise. A spokesman for NMSC stated that the corporation believes "the high standing of Merit Program Commended stu- dents is an attainment that deserves their public recog- nition, because the nation as as these students will be filed by continued educa- tional and personal develop- ment of their talents," Commended students do not continue in the Merit Scholarship competition, but to increase their opportuni- ties for college admission and financial aid NMSC has offer- ed each an opportunity to have identifying information sent by the corporation to two higher education institutions selected by the student. In addition, NMSC makes it possible for all regionally accredited U.S. colleges and universities to receive home addresses for Commended students, on a cost basis, so that an institution may con- tact any of these promising young men and women direct- ly. It is hoped that recog- nition of the Commended students in each year's Merit Program will serve as an encouragement to able youth and will assist them in ob- taining whatever information and assistance they may need to pursue their educational plans.
