WEST CALDWELL, NJ — Principal James Devlin of James Caldwell High School announced this week that James Caldwell High School juniors Megan West, Oliver King, Rebecca Davenport, Jenna Martinez, Emma Stevens, and Jack Zhuang have been named “Commended Students” in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program after more than 1.6-million high school juniors took the the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

In October, 50,000 students were identified as the highest scorers. Approximately 14,000 students, representing less than one percent of each state’s high school seniors, were recognized as National Merit Semifinalists, and the other 34,000 high performers were recognized as Commended Students for their exceptional academic promise.

Although they will not continue in the 2017 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of the students who entered the 2017 competition.

“We are extremely proud of these students for their academic excellence, and of the educators in our schools who contribute to their success,” said Caldwell-West Caldwell Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Heinegg. “Education is truly a collaborative endeavor; the students, parents, staff, Board of Education, and community members in our district constitute an outstanding team working together for a common goal.”

A spokesperson for the National Merit Scholarship Program said the young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success. 

“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 spokesperson stated. “We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Would Shedding

How much wood wouldn’t a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck woodn’t?

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
