Alex Norris Named Commended Student

A Sheridan High School senior has been named a Commended Student in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Alex Norris is one of about 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation being recognized for exceptional academic promise. Commended Students are placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

"The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," said a spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. "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."
