METUCHEN, NJ - Three groups of juniors and seniors at Saint Joseph High School have been awarded recognition from the National Merit Program for their excellent scores in the PSAT/NMSQT testing process.
Every year, approximately 1.5 million students are administered the PSAT/NMSQT examination, where only 50,000 of them score highly enough to be entered into the qualifications for being named either a Commended Student or a Semifinalist. Roughly two-thirds of these students are awarded with the Commended Student title.
Saint Joseph High School is proud to announce that 14 members of the Class of 2023 have been named as Commended Students:
Julian Dutemple, Jordan Gopez, Timothy Haklar, Matthew Imhoff, Liam Kelly, Justin Lee, Jeremy Mellyn, Joshua Oliveira, Alejandro Ruiz, Scott Schmitt, Armon Singh, Vincent Smythe, Pranav Tikkawar, and Jim Yu.
The National Merit program also offers academic accolades to underrepresented groups of students who score highly on the examination. Adrian Perdomo ‘24, Cesar Cepeda ‘23, Jason Magistre ‘24, and Mason Cinca ‘23 were chosen as recipients of the National Hispanic Recognition Award, and Joshua Ingram ‘23 received the National African American Recognition Award.
