2018 National Merit Scholar Program Commended Students
Four students at MSDA received Letters of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Program in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.
Essex Fells residents Olivia Apuzzi and Alessandra DiFilippo, Roseland resident Morgan Palumbo, and Woodland Park resident Renee Samuel entered the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). The students received the award notification this fall.
About 34,000 students throughout the nation are recognized as Commended Students. Although they will not continue in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, the Mount St. Dominic Academy seniors ranked in the top three percent of scorers of more than 1.6 million students who took the qualifying exam.
Congratulations to these accomplished students!
