Anderson has been named a Commended Student in the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program.

“Recognizing academically talented students play a fundamental role in the advancement of educational excellence within our nation,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “The young people recognized as Commended Students represent some of the best and brightest minds in the country as demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program. We sincerely hope this recognition will provide them with additional educational outlets and motivate them in their pursuit of academic achievement.”
 
Jessica, a senior at Marshall County High School is the captain of the MCHS swim team, a five year tutor for Marshall County elementary students, a member of the JETS engineering team, secretary of the Young Americans Foundation and a member of her church youth group.
 
She is the daughter of Mark and Martha Anderson of Benton.
