Seniors Earn Accolades For PSAT Scores

Twelve Ursuline students have been named National Merit Commended Students for their performance on the PSAT by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Four students have also been named National Hispanic Scholars.

This is in addition to the seven students who were notified of National Merit Semifinalist status last week.

Ursuline is proud to recognize the following young women!

National Merit Commended Students

Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 of the more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the PSAT test in 2017. Although they do not continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, they deserve recognition for their high scores.
