Julia Johnson and Jared Jaksik are recognized as Commended Students in the National Merit Scholarship Program. The Commended Students placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2012 competition by taking the 2010 PSAT.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional promise. Julia and Jared are recognized with an official certificate from the National Merit Scholarship Corp.
