Oak Ridge High’s Seven Commended Scholars

Oct 25, 2019

Congratulations to seven spectacular students from Oak Ridge High School! Harper's Preserve would like to applaud Ryan Cross, William Hughes, Kade Johnson, Chandler Kennedy, Trevor Smith, Nathan Stern and Macy West for earning the Commended Scholars title. This means they scored in the top 3-4% on their Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT). 


The Nation Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) seeks to recognize students who perform at an exceptional level on their standardized exams. Students need to take the PSAT to be considered for recognition by the NMSC. The scores that determine whether students are recognized as Commended Scholars or Semifinalists are set by each state using the NMSC’s Selection Index. Students that store in the top 3-4% are recognized as Commended Scholars, and Semifinalists score in the top 1%.
