Oswego, Ill. (September 22, 2022) — Oswego Community Unit School District is proud to announce that the following students from Oswego High School: Emily Lupi, Ella Schrader, Matthew Schuman, Stephanie Sendra, Joshua Tiffany, and Evan Wille, and Oswego East High School: Luke Ahlquist, Lukas Gacek, Jason Gaston, Cassandra Kubera, Walker Lebeck, Anshi Mather, and Kyran Siddiqui for having been named as Commended Students in the annual 2022-2023 National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) Program.
These students entered the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test(PSAT/NMSQT®) offered last October. In April, the NMSC identified the 50,000 highest scorers and notified their high schools.
At this time, approximately 34,000 (of the 50,000 highest scorers) throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise as Commended Students. Although these students will not continue in the 2023 competition as Semifinalists for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers across the nation who entered the 2023 competition.
"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."
Congratulations to these outstanding students from both Oswego High School and Oswego East High School on this outstanding achievement.
