EDISON, NJ -- Susan Swenson, Director of College Counseling at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison, announced that three Wardlaw seniors -- Max Needle of Scotch Plains and Astitva Soni and Nathaniel Nyema of Edison -- have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation was presented to these scholastically talented seniors at morning meeting on Sept. 22.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2016 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students are placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the competition by taking the PSAT or National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
