HARRISON, N.Y. --Eight Harrison High School seniors were recognized by the National Merit Scholar Program as 2016 Commended Students.
The students are Dillon Bogart, Andrew Carton, Ella Eisinger, Amr El-Azizi, Allison Karantzsis, Phillip Milana, Sarah Ryan and Mihoko Sakanaka.
In October 2014, more than 1.5 million U.S. high school students who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) and met other program participation requirements, entered the 2016 competition for National Merit Scholarship Program recognition and scholarships.
PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index scores – the sum of critical reading, mathematics and writing skills scores, are used to determine 50,000 high scoring participants who qualify for program recognition.
Nearly two-thirds of those high scorers received National Merit Scholar Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.
