BE Students Honored in the 2005 National Merit Scholarship Program

Bishop England High School is pleased to announce the following seniors who are Commended Students in the 2006 National Merit Scholarship Program: Christine Clarke-Pounder, daughter of Richard and Audrey Clarke-Pounder; Liz Graham, daughter of Dan and Polly Graham; and Anne Reid, daughter of Bob and Betsy Reid. Each of these scholastically talented seniors receives a letter of commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2006 competition for Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than one million students who entered the 2006 competition by taking the 2004 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

A spokesperson for the National Merit Program commented, "It is important to acknowledge the attainments of academically talented students and to credit schools for the key role they play in their development. We hope the recognition received by these able young men and women who are commended in this rigorous, nationwide competition will encourage them to take advantage of opportunities for higher education and to diligently pursue their professional goals."
