TP commended student in National Merit Program

Two Bremen High School District 228 students have been named commended students in the 2023 National Merit Scholarship program, by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

According to the corporation, about 34,000 commended students are being nationally recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although commended students do not move on to the 2023 competition for National Merit Scholarship Awards, commended students place among the top 50,000 students who entered the 2023 competition by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

District 228 students who received the recognition are Jacob Moslander, a senior at Tinley Park High School, and Tyler Burns, a senior at Oak Forest High School.

“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented 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.”

Tinley Park High School and Oak Forest High School both presented their commended students with their letter of Commendation form the corporation. The letter recognizes the students as scholastically talented seniors.

“I am humbled to be receiving this honorary recognition for my hard work. I hope to continue my strong academic career throughout college and beyond,” Moslander said. “I am grateful for all of the teachers and staff of Tinley Park High School for providing me with an amazing and unforgettable education.”

Tyler Burns’ thoughts are humble and mostly for the future Bengals coming after him.

“Pay attention when teachers are highlighting PSAT material. Although it gets harder, it’s worth it,” Burns said. Burns also mentioned that it was important to understand how you learn, because for him, it is best to have his literature and language classes in the afternoon. “Think about how your schedule works for you.”
