MORRIS COUNTY — At the November 13 Board of Education meeting, seventeen students were recognized as being Commended Students or Semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Program. These senior students were recognized by the College Board based upon their academic achievement on the PSAT/NMSQT exam. Of the approximately 1.5 million students who took the PSAT, roughly only 34,000 make the national cut score which qualifies them as Commended  Students. Furthermore, students who qualify as National Merit Semifinalists must reach an even higher score established by each state. In the state of New Jersey, the semifinal cut score is typically among the highest in the nation.
Hanover Park High School Recipients. Principal, Thomas Callanan, Samantha Rigor, Ryan Quiogue, Philip Mascaro, Ania Tureczek, Board President, Dr. Gerard Freda, Superintendent of Schools, Maria Carrell (not pictured are students Benson Har and Jason Hwu).
