Pope John XXIII Regional High School seniors Christopher Biancone, Sarah Brooks, Jacklyn Healy, Christopher Jhong, Matthew Rose and Sydney Slepian have been named Commended Students in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.

"We are extremely proud of our Commended Students," Pope John XXIII Regional High School President Msgr. Kieran McHugh said. "They have done wonderful things for our school. They are certainly an ‘Honor to the Father.’"

Including these six seniors, Pope John has now had 42 Commended Students since the 2013-14 school year. During this six-year span, Pope John has had at least five Commended Students in five of those years. In addition, the school has had four National Merit Scholarship finalists.

Biancone, Brooks, Healy, Jhong, Rose and Slepian were among approximately 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation who were recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers in the pool of 1.6 million juniors from about 22,000 high schools who entered the competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
