Cedar Springs High School principal Ronald Behrenwald announced this week that Gabriella Schatz, a senior at Cedar Springs, has been named a Commended Student in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.

The principal will present a letter of commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program, to this scholastically talented senior.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2015 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2015 competition, by taking the 2013 preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

“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 accomplishment, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their education opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
