Zachary Miller, a senior at Tahquitz High School, was named a Commended Student in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program. Principal Eric Dahlstrom presented a Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NSMC).
Zachary was among the top five percent of students nation-wide that took the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). This program was created to recognize students for their exceptional academic promise. Nearly 1.6 million students entered the competition and only 34,000 are being recognized. We are very proud that Zachary is among them.
“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,” stated a spokesperson from NSMC in a recent press release.
Derek Jindra, former Tahquitz Principal, said Zachary is a phenomenal student in all facets, not just academics. “He is a great example of what a Hemet Unified student is and should aspire to be.”
Congratulations Zachary on this tremendous accomplishment!
