Murray High School principal, Tony Jarvis, announced that Luke Cross, MHS senior, has been named a Commended Student in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, was presented to Cross.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for the exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2022 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).
"Those 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 opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
Since 1974, Murray High School boasts 53 National Merit Finalists, and 11 National Merit Commended scholars.
Cross is the son of Rob and Summer Cross, Murray. #murrayschools
