Two Saints Recognized as Commended Scholars


STA seniors Patrick Reidy and Zach Pitts have been named as Commended Scholars in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation have been recognized this year for their exceptional academic promise. Patrick and Zach placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2021 competition by taking the 2019 PSAT (preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test).

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success, “commented an NMSC spokesperson. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
