The National Merit Scholarship Program named Caitlin Lightle '19 and Grace Leary '19 as Commended Students. More than 1.6 million students took the 2017 SAT/National Merit Qualifying Test last October and the top 3% of those test takers qualified as Commended Students this fall. Congratulations to Caitlin and Grace for their academic achievement.
Grace said, "this recognition feels so awesome because...it feels like a tangible representation of my accomplishments."
Her classmate Caitlin encouraged other young women to work toward these types of goals: "I think that these types of recognitions are important for young women because it inspires them to keep striving for excellence in everything that they do, and shows them that through hard work and perseverance, they can accomplish anything they set their minds to."
Congratulations, Caitlin and Grace!
