SKANEATELES, NY (September 19, 2017) – Skaneateles High School principal, Greg Santoro, announced today that Seniors Samuel McClintic and Lucas Rathgeb have been named Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.  A letter of Commendation from Skaneateles High School and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation was presented to these scholastically talented students on Tuesday morning.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.  Although they will not continue in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking their 2016 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 accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational 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.”
