Delta High students receive academic awards

Delta High School students Aaron-Michael Sintay, Samuel Taylor and Michael Warner have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program.

A Letter of Commendation from Delta High School and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation will be presented to these scholastically talented seniors.

Connor Gill is continuing on in the National Merit Scholarship Program, and is a semi-finalist in the competition.

“We are proud of our students’ academic accomplishment; earning recognition in the National Merit Competition is a rare honor,” said Jenny Rodriquez, principal of Delta High School.

Commended Students placed among the top 5 percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
