Joliet Township High School is proud to announce that three JTHS students were recognized by the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program for their academic excellence.
Joliet West High School students Madeline Blaauw and Alfreda Hogan and Joliet Central student Hunter Thoms were recognized as National Merit Scholarship Program Commended Students.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2018 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 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “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 opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
