Newport Catholic Student "Commended" by National Merit Program
A Newport Central Catholic student is among those recognized as a "commended student" by the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program.
Vincent J. Miglio, of Dayton, received a letter of commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) for the achievement.
The senior was among 34,000 commended students throughout the country who were recognized, though they will not advance in the scholarship competition.
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 (PSAT/NMSQT).
“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” a statement from 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.”
New Cath Principal Ron Dawn said, “We continue to be impressed with Vinny’s academic achievements.”
Miglio is the son of Tony and Betsy Miglio.
