We are happy to announce that our very own, Clayton Fender, has been named a Commended Student in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. We congratulate Clayton for all his hard work to accomplish this achievement.
Over 1.5 million students took the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) last October and entered the National Merit Scholarship Program, a nationwide competition for recognition and awards conducted by the NMSC. In April, NSMC identified the 50,000 highest scores. Some 16,000 of those high performers were designated Semifinalists on a state representational basis.
The other 34,00 high performers are now being named Commended Students based on a national Selection Index score of 212. Clayton's high scores earned him the honor of a Commended Student. This is an excellent honor that represents Clayton scoring in the top 3.3% of all students taking this exam.
Congratulations, Clayton! Godley ISD is proud of all of your hard work and academic achievements!
