Williamson County Schools students’ academic prowess is continuing to break records after 88 students were named National Merit Commended Students. The previous record of Commended Students was set last year with 84 students.

In order to receive the honor of being named a Commended Student, a student must place in the top five percent of all entrants into the National Merit Program. Around 1.6 million students enter the National Merit Program each year, and only 34,000 of those are named Commended Students.

Although Commended Students do not continue in the competition for National Merit scholarships, some of these students do become candidates for special scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.
