Deerfield-Windsor Head of School, Allen Lowe, announced today that Frank Middleton has been named a Commended Student in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, was presented to this talented senior.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2021 competition for the National Merit Scholarship Awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2021 competition by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
"Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented Janet Guillebeau, Upper School Division Director. A spokesperson from the NMSC reiterates that "These students represent a valuable 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."
