“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.”
