Nick Bullard has been named a Commended Student in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program!  About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 students out of over 2 million who entered the 2023 competition by taking the 2021 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 roll their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.  We hope this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Nick was also recognized as a National Rural and Small Town Scholar by the College Board for his performance on the PSAT/NMSQT test last Fall.  Students are eligible for this recognition if they manage to score in the top 10% of test takers and are from a small town.  Please congratulate Nick when you see him around town.  Well done!!
