He is being honored for his strong academic promise, as demonstrated by his performance on the qualifying test used for program entry.

The Rondout Valley senior is among 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation being recognized for their excellence in education. Although they will not continue on in the 2023 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2023 competition by taking the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
