The Levittown School District is pleased to announce MacArthur High School seniors Peter Ly, Kaitlin Reilly, Andrew Spinelli and Brian Zilli have been named Commended Students by the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Each of these scholastically accomplished students has been presented with a Letter of Commendation by their principal on behalf of the school and the NMSP, which conducts the program.
Approximately 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although these students will not continue in the 2013 competition for Merit Scholarship awards, being named a Commended Student recognizes that these seniors are among the top 5 percent of the students who entered the competition by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
