John F. Kennedy Counseling Department is proud to recognize that senior Niranjan Behera has been honored as a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. Over 1.6 million students took the PSAT/NMSQT last October and entered the scholarship competition. At this stage of the competition, 34,000 high performers are being named Commended Students based on their Selection Index score. 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. Always seeking challenge, Niranjan has selected and mastered some of our school’s most rigorous Honors and Advanced Placement courses, while participating in extracurricular activities on our campus.  We sincerely hope this well-deserved recognition will enhance his educational opportunities and encourage him in his pursuit of academic and collegiate success. Congratulations to Niranjan!
