Kazalski Commended By National Merit

Kazalski Commended By National Merit

The Principal of Beach Channel High School, Andrea G. Holt, has announced that Paul Kazalski has been named a Commended Student in the 2003 National Merit Scholarship Program.

A Letter of Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.

Being recognized for their exceptional academic promise are a total of about 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation. Although they will not continue in the 2003 competition for Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than one million students who entered the 2003 competition by taking the 2001 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

An NMSC spokesperson commented, "The young men and women named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for future academic success by their high performance in the extremely competitive National Merit Scholarship Program. These scholastically talented youth represent a valuable resource to our nation; it is important to publicly recognize their attainments and to credit schools for the important part they play in their development. We hope this recognition will help broaden the educational opportunities of Commended Students and encourage all students to develop their abilities to the fullest."
