For a high school student, there is perhaps no greater academic achievement or award than being named a National Merit Scholar. Penn
ridge High School is fortunate to have four students who earned Commended status based on their performance in the spring 2017 Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude test, which also serves as a qualifier for the National Merit Scholarship program. 

Nicholas Eissler, Thomas Geiger, Alanna Lee, and David Scavuzzo were among the top 3 percent from among the 1.6 million students who took the 2017 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. They were recognized by the Pennridge School Board on December 3.

"We are proud of your accomplishment," Superintendent David A. Bolton told the students. "It is a testament to your hard work and your family's support that you were are able to excel at this level. We look forward to even more achievements from you in the future."
