“We are so proud of these students for receiving this recognition,” MBHS Principal Philip Holley said. “It comes from many years of hard work inside and outside the classroom. They are dedicated students who are definitely deserving of this honor.”
The six students received commendation for their performance on the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) last fall. They placed among the top 50,000 scorers of the more than 1.5 million students who took the test.
In addition to its commended students, MBHS had 16 others in the Class of 2021 recognized as National Merit Semifinalists — more than any other Alabama high school.
