Tate High School senior Seth Ray has received the honor of being named as a Commended student in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program, announced Principal Laura Touchstone on Tuesday.
A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC®), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this exceptionally talented senior.
This prestigious recognition is a reflection of Seth’s exceptional performance on the PSAT/NMSQT. This accomplishment is not only a testament to Seth’s abilities but also a credit to the supportive and enriching academic environment fostered at Tate High School.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2024 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2024 competition by taking the 2022 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
“I am immensely proud to see Seth’s hard work and dedication acknowledged at the national level, “Touchstone said. “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.”
Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC.
“We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success,” the spokesperson added.
“The National Merit Scholarship Program is highly competitive, and this achievement reflects Seth’s outstanding intellectual abilities, tireless work ethic, and commitment to academic excellence.”
