Twelve High Tech students receive Letter of Commendation from National Merit Scholarship Program

A Letter of Commendation from High Tech High School and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) will be presented by Dr. Joseph Giammarella, principal of High Tech, to twelve outstanding scholars.
Commended students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 competition by taking the PSAT/NMSQT last year. NMSC has recognized approximately 34,000 commended students across the country, although they will not continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships in 2016.
The 12 HTHS seniors are Amina and Sara Bendaoud, George Iskander, and Hayoung Park of Bayonne; Harrison resident Rora Cai; Jack Tisdell of Hoboken; Kearny resident Sabina Ohkawa; Nicholas Palmer and Jennifer Tu of North Bergen; Secaucus residents Ryan Gulati and Justin Luh; and Emory Kemph of Weehawken, all of whom have met the qualifications for the National Merit Scholarship Program.
The young men and women named as commended students have shown outstanding potential for academic success, according to Eileen Artemakis and Matthew Budreau, spokespersons for NMSC.
High Tech High School accepts students from throughout Hudson County.
