'^^\ USPS 580-360 THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1987 VOLUME 27-NUMBER 29 fhe Huutle^ OFFICE PHONE 312-669-5621 SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 ¦¦¦BMiiiMVHHiMM 25c per copy # # Commended Students In The 1988 Merit Program Huntley High School has been notified that David Bond, Pat Glenn and Chad Warrington have been desig¬ nated Commended Students in the 1988 National Merit Scholarship Program and will receive a Letter of Commenda¬ tion in recognition of out¬ standing academic promise. Gene Goeglein, Principal, announced today that these seniors placed in the top 50,000 of more than one million participants in the 33rd annual Merit Program. A spokesman for National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) of Evanston, Illinois, which conducts the competition, pointed out that being designated a Commended Student in the Merit Program is an accomplishment of which both the student and the high school may be especially proud. High performance in this rigorous competition is indicative of exceptional scholastic ability, which schools play an important role in developing. It is ¦ hoped that recognition of these young men and women will add to their motivation to pursue higher education and become productive adult citizens in a society that values talents such as theirs. Participants entered the current Merit Program by taking the PSAT/NMSQT in October 1986, when most of them were juniors. Although their qualifying test scores are high, the 35,000 young people throughout the nation who are Commended Students scored slightly below the level required for Semifmal- ist standing in their respec¬ tive states. Only the 15,000 Semifmalists, whose names were announced on September 16, will continue in the competition for the some 6,000 Merit Scholarships to be awarded in the spring of 1988.
