Five Tokay High School students are among 16,000 nationwide to be recognized as “Commended Students” in the 2014 National Merit Program for their Preliminary SAT scores.

They include Keon Anderson, Daniel MConnelly, Christopher Golden, Kylie Henne and Albert Lee.

About 1.5 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2012 PSAT, which served as an initial screen of program entrants.

The nationwide pool of semifinalists represents less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors. The number of semifinalists in a state is proportional to the state’s percentage of the national total of graduating seniors.

NMSC, a nonprofit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 440 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions.
