Dreher is Proud of our Three National Commended Scholars

Commended Scholars The National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced that three Dreher seniors are 2020 National Merit Commended Scholars.  



These academically talented students are (from left to right in the photo) Tyler Kendrick, Hayley Mason, and Michael Shimizu. 



Over 1.5 million juniors in about 21,000 high schools entered the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/NMST Test in October, 2018.  About 34,000 of the approximately 50,000 high scorers on the PSAT/NMSQT® received Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.



Commended Students are named on the basis of a nationally applied Selection Index score that is just below the level required for participants to be named Semifinalists.


Dreher is extremely proud of our three commended scholars: 


Tyler is the son of Tammy Kendrick and Gary Kendrick.  Hayley is the daughter of Elizabeth Mason and Geoffrey Mason.  Michael is the son of Linda Shimizu and Ken Shimizu.
