Oct 6, 2022

Eight Bishop Stang students, including two Dartmouth residents, were recognized by the College Board or National Merit Scholarship organizations for their results in standardized tests.

Six students earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs, and two students received a Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

The College Board National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications, helping them stand out during the admissions process.

Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.

The following students received recognition from the College Board for their performance on the PSAT (preliminary SAT)/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, PSAT 10, and/or AP Exams:

Junior Lukas Hirschmann of Dartmouth, National Hispanic Recognition Award; senior Chantel Salemenior of Westport, National Hispanic Recognition Award; junior GIanna Morales of Assonet, National African American Recognition, National Hispanic Recognition, and National Indigenous Awards; senior Jasmine Duncan of New Bedford, National African American Recognition Award; senior Samuel Martin of New Bedford, National Hispanic Recognition Award; and junior Skyla Alves of New Bedford, National Hispanic Recognition Award.

The National Merit Scholarship Program awarded Letters of Commendation to two Bishop Stang seniors.

According to the 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.”

The following students placed among the 50,000 top students in the nation on the PSAT/NMS Qualifying Test:

Senior Marcus Mourato of Dartmouth and senior Kevin Santiago of New Bedford.
