MEDIA RELEASE

Parker School Headmaster Carl Sturges has announced Daniel Gregg and McCrae Johnston have been named Commended Students in the 2011 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 the headmaster to these scholastically talented seniors.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.

“Recognition of high-achieving students is essential to advancing educational excellence in our nation,” according to NMSC. “As demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program, the young men named Commended Students represent some of the most academically talented students in our country. We sincerely hope this recognition will enhance their educational opportunities and encourage them in the pursuit of academic success.”
