Ten NCHS students earn National Merit Commended status!

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

Last October, more than 1.5 million students took the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Of those 1.5 million students, 34,000 students nationwide are being recognized as Commended students based on their exceptional academic promise.

Ten of those students are seniors here at Nolan Catholic, and we are so proud to recognize them for their academic achievement today.


These students, according to the National Merit Committee, “represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the 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 their continue their pursuit of academic success.”


Please join me in recognizing our following Commended scholars for the 2019 school year:


Andrew Benkowski

Lucine Devejian

Drew Emrich

Annie Emrich

Ryan Gale

Jacob Marquardt

Connor May

Angel Nguyen

Thien Ly Nguyen

Drake Varga


We are so proud of these students. Their academic success does credit not only to them, but to their parents, teachers, friends, and our whole school community. We thank all of those people who have supported them in their journeys to academic achievement. And thank you, commended scholars, for your hard work and effort. We know this accomplishment is only one step along your academic journey, and we’re so excited to see where that journey takes you.
