National Merit Commended Scholars

Dayton Eagle and Emily Prewitt, have been named Commended Students in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. The two of them received a Letter of Commendation from Burleson High School and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program to these scholastically talented seniors, at Monday’s Board Meeting.


About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Dayton and Emily placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).


Please congratulate Dayton Eagle and Emily Prewitt.
