National Merit Commended Student



The principal, Ms. Debra Novy, of Marian Central Catholic High School announced today that Dean Limosnero has been named a Commended Student in the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented to the principal and this scholastically talented senior.

“We are very proud of Dean and this accomplishment. He has had a tremendous impact here at Marian and we look forward to seeing where his talents will take him in the future,” states Principal Novy. Through his four years here at Marian, Dean has been an active member of the Math and Worldwide Youth Science and Engineering Clubs, the student mentor program, Scholastic Bowl, and the tennis team, to name a few.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. 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 competition by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These students represent a valuable natural 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.”
