IHS Principal, Mr. Wilson announced that Leo Nicolussi has been named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from Iroquois High School and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, was presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

"The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson for NMSC. "These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key 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 they continue their pursuit of academic success."

The Iroquois School Board will also recognize Leo's accomplishments at the full board meeting on Monday, October 15 by presenting him with the Iroquois School Board of Directors’ Certificate of Achievement of Students.
