Students at both De Soto High School Mill Valley High School received Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

Senior Mya Conley at DHS and seniors Joan Downey, Alexander Lee and Kevin Lee at MVHS all received Letters of Commendation in late September.

The top 3-4% of scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT® are named Commended Scholar. 

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.
