Hannah K. Chapman and Elizabeth E. Abercrombie of Newnan High School and Abbie Farr and John Dean Uglum of The Heritage School were named Commended Students in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Both schools are proud of their students’ achievements with this program.

“Hannah and Elizabeth are fantastic students,” said Newnan High School Principal Chase Puckett. “Both these students are very hardworking. They are prime examples of students who are taking advantage of all Newnan High School has to offer.”

“Abby and John Dean consistently set a high standard for their peers,” said Head of School at The Heritage School J.P. Watson. “As President of the Senior Class and Vice President of the Student Government Association, respectively, they demonstrate how hard work and diligence can lead to tremendous success. We are thrilled for their accomplishments and look forward to their continued leadership and success.”

Commended Students are those who have placed among the top five percent of the students who entered the 2014 competition by taking the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). Over one and a half million students entered the competition.

All four of these Coweta students will be given a Letter of Commendation from their respective schools and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “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.”
