Tri-County RVTHS student recognized for outstanding performance on PSAT
Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School senior Cassius Peter was honored Friday for placing among the top 5-percent of U.S. students who took the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test in 2013.
For his outstanding performance, Cassius was named a Commended Student by the 2015 National Merit Scholarship Program. On Friday, Superintendent-Director Stephen Dockray and Principal Jean Mallon presented him with a Letter of Commendation from the school and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation in recognition of his efforts.
“Cassius is not only a scholar, he is extremely civic-minded,” said Principal Mallon. “Cassius volunteered many hours for the American Red Cross and was instrumental in bringing the blood drive back to Tri-County.”
Cassius, a Franklin resident, joins only 34,000 other students nationwide in receiving the commendation.
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” said a spokesperson for 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. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
