Two students named Commended Students in the 2019 National Merit ScholarshipProgram

Salisbury High School students Sean Snyder and Peyton Stauffer have been named Commended Students in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.

A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program, was presented by Salisbury High School to Snyder and Stauffer.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” a spokesperson for NMSC said.

“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 this recognition will help broaden their educatonal opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
