Student Named a National Merit Scholar


High School senior Erik Zimmerman is an accomplished student within the district who serves as a member of the National Honor Society and World Languages National Honor Society, and has achieved Advanced Placement Scholar with Distinction status by the College Board. In addition to his superior performance in the classroom, the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program has announced he is also a Commended Student.

Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students, in some 22,000 high schools, who entered the 2011 competition. The 2009 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) served as an initial screening of program entrants.

Erik received a Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which was presented to him by High School Principal James Cummings.
