National Merit Scholars

Every year, over 1.5 million students take the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, also known as the PSAT. Of those students, 34,000 students are recognized as Commended Students.

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program.

This year, five Higley High School students, Tiberius Baker, Connor Davis, Aadith Mosur, David Napoli and Laci Simmons-Wollbrinck, were recognized as Commended Students.

“We hope this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success,” said the spokesperson.

Higley is proud to recognize the students’ hard work and success. Congratulations!

Higley High School, in Gilbert, Arizona, is part of Higley Unified School District.
