BRAINERD — Two Brainerd High School students were named commended students in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship Program.

A letter of commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation will be presented to the principal and seniors Sophia Robin and Julia Rademacher.

Robin and Rademacher join about 34,000 commended students throughout the country, recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue on in the 2023 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, commended students placed among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2023 competition by taking the 2021 preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Quality Test.

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” a spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Program wrote in a news release. “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.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
