The Loveland City School District congratulates Loveland High School (LHS) Seniors Zachary Case, Ashley George, Simon Grome, Daniel Hinrichsen and Samantha James, who have been named Commended Students in the 2020 National Merit® Scholarship Program. Commended Students are recognized for the exceptional academic promise demonstrated by their outstanding performance on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

Approximately 34,000 test takers in the United States qualified as Commended Students by placing among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who took the PSAT/NMSQT in October 2018.

“We are thrilled to have five Commended Students at Loveland High School this year,” said LHS Principal Peggy Johnson. “This is truly a fantastic accomplishment by each one of them and an amazing stepping stone in their continued pursuit of academic success.”
