Whippany Park High School is proud to announce that Abigail Bernstein, Kai Chiu, Sophia Lee, Janvi Patel, Daniel Song, and Adam Trinh have been named Commended Students in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by Mr. Kelly to these scholastically talented seniors. About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2023 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2022 competition by taking the 2020 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) A spokesperson for NMSC notes,“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success. 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.”
Michael Grogan Named Semifinalist in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program! Whippany Park senior Michael Grogan has been named a semifinalist in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. This program offers academically talented high school seniors an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,250 National Merit Scholarships worth nearly $28 million that will be offered next spring. High school juniors entered the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. Congratulations, Michael!
Whippany Park has won the Great Schools College Success Award! Now in its fifth year, the College Success Award recognizes public high schools that excel at preparing students for college and beyond. WPHS is one of only 1,742 public high schools across the nation to win this year's Award. We're excited to celebrate our dedication to preparing students to enroll in college and succeed once they get there!
Four Whippany Park High School students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs. These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service. The following students, in order from left to right in the photo, have been awarded recognition: James Jeffers: National African American Recognition Award, National Hispanic Recognition Award Jonathan Gomez: National Hispanic Recognition Award Matthew Griffin: National Hispanic Recognition Award Sebastian Giraldo: National Hispanic Recognition Award Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students will be invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and will be awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students will receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications. “We want to honor the hard work of these students through the College Board National Recognition Programs. This program creates a way for colleges and scholarship programs to connect directly with underrepresented students who they are hoping to reach,” said Tarlin Ray, College Board senior vice president of BigFuture. “We hope the award winners and their families celebrate this prestigious honor and it helps them plan for their big future.”
