WEST NEWBURY — Superintendent Justin Bartholomew and Principal Jonathan Seymour are pleased to share that four Pentucket Regional High School seniors have been named Commended Students for the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program.
The students are:
- Emily Brankman of West Newbury
- Kara Keene of Groveland
- Nora Landry of West Newbury
- Alex Pedersen of West Newbury
“We are incredibly proud of these students for achieving recognition from the National Merit Scholarship Program,” Superintendent Bartholomew said. “They are not only top students, but serve as role models for other students who push themselves to achieve academically.”
The students have received letters of commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
The Pentucket students are among 34,000 Commended Students recognized throughout the nation this year. Commended Students have placed among the top 50,000 scorers of the more than 1.5 million students who took the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), but do not continue in the 2022 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards.
“On behalf of the Pentucket community, congratulations to Alex, Emily, Kara, and Nora,” said Principal Seymour. “The PSAT is an incredibly challenging exam, and their awards are the result of hard work and dedication.”
