FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. – Three students at Lauralton Hall Catholic School in Milford who live in Fairifled County have been recognized as Commended Students in the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program.

The honored students are:

  • Marissa S. Browne of Stamford,
  • Devon K. Valera of Fairfield, and
  • Jessica Vanam of Norwalk.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their academic promise.

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said a spokesperson for NMSC. “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.”

Although they will not continue in the 2015 competition for the National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students ranked among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2015 competition by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
