Two Heathwood seniors have been recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their outstanding performance on the 2017 PSAT.
Ben Mathews was named a National Merit Semifinalist. Kendall Couch was named a National Merit Commended Scholar. Those designations mean both were among the 50,000 highest scorers on last year's PSAT, among the 1.6 million students who took the test.
Ben and Kendall join 159 previous Heathwood students who have been honored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation since we graduated our first senior class in 1977.
