Letter of Commendation for James
You are among 34,000 Commended Students nationwide who have shown exceptional academic promise. Only the 16,000 higher-scoring program participants who qualified as semifinalists will continue in the competition for Merit Scholarship awards. However, your performance on the qualifying test was outstanding and recognition as a Commended Student is a credit to you, your parents, and your high school.
The degree of success you achieve in the future will depend upon you - your use of your abilities and your perseverance towards the goals you set for yourself. We offer you our best wishes with the hope that being named a Commended Student in the National Merit Program will broaden your horizons and encourage you to develop your potential to the fullest.
