PMSA Seniors Test Scores Among Top in the Nation

PMSA seniors John Lee, of Forest Park, and Jennifer Ugarte, of Stone Park, say they have yet another accolade to add to their college applications. These two seniors were recently commended by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMC) for scoring in the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students in the nation on their PSATs.

“The young people named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding academic potential by their strong performance,” commented a spokesperson for NMC. “We hope that this recognition will enhance their educational opportunities and that they will continue to diligently pursue their professional goals.”

Lee and Ugarte are two of 34,000 students throughout the United States who are being recognized for their PSAT scores. Though counselors were extremely proud of their accomplishments, the duo seemed humbled about their high achievement.

“Usually, I just take the test and try to get a good grade,” said Lee. “This just sort of happened, and I’m happy about it. It’s exciting to be commended.”

Ugarte agreed, it’s nice to be recognized for doing well. “I’m really glad,” said Ugarte. “I always try to do the best that I can. So, it’s good to be recognized for it.”

Ugarte and Lee both say the most exciting part about their recognition is a more polished college application. But, for Superintendent Dr. Nettie Collins-Hart the two represent academic scholars.

“We congratulate our two seniors on their grand accomplishment,” said Collins-Hart. “They are but a sample of the many great young minds that we have in PMSA and across our school system. They’ve done well, and we are extremely proud of them.”
