Lackawanna Trail High School Principal John Rushefski announced that Colleen Brace, daughter of Maureen and David Brace, Dalton, has been named a Commended Student in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program.


A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts this program will be presented by Rushefski to this scholastically 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 2013 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of the more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2013 competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).


The young people recognized as Commended Students represent some of the best and brightest minds in the country as demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program, said an NMSC spokesperson.
