Two Warren County School District students were recently recognized among a select group of the “scholastically talented.”

Eric Honsberger, a senior at Eisenhower High School, and Caitlin Strassburg, a senior at Warren Area High School, were named Commended Students in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program.

Their scores on the PSAT placed them in the top 3 percent nationally.

“Although they will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2019 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT),” according to a letter presented to the principals of each students’ school.

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” according to the release.
