OHS Senior Recognized in National Merit Scholarship Program

Ozark High School senior Morgan Taylor has been named a Commended Student in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. 

Taylor will be honored with a Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation, which conducts the program. 

Taylor is one of about 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although she will not continue in the 2021 competition for National Merit Scholarship Awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2021 competition by taking the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. 

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” according to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. “These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
