Kennett High School is proud to announce that seniors (back, from left) Jake A. Kalscheur, Nicole C. Huff, Nathan E. Dight (sitting, from back), Ryley W. Harris, Abigail D. Duckworth, Kathleen M. Schuetz, and Claire M. Dawyot (standing, front) have been named Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.
A Letter of Commendation from Kennett High School and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program, has been presented by Kennett High School principal, Dr. Jeremy Hritz, to these scholastically talented seniors.
“We are so proud of these outstanding students, not only for their exceptional performance on standardized tests but also for all the other ways in which they enrich the Kennett Square community,” Dr. Hritz stated. Although these students do not continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships, they placed among the top 5 percent of the 1.5 million students who entered the 2018 Merit Scholarship competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
The Kennett Consolidated School District congratulates Jake, Nicole, Nathan, Ryley, Abigail, Kathleen, and Claire on this outstanding accomplishment.
