Upper Academy Director, Amanda Ormiston, of Neuse Charter School, announced today that Grayson Ferguson has been named a Commended Student in the 2024 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from NCS and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the Academy Director to this 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 2024 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2024 competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable natural resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as they key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of education excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
