This past Mercy Day, at a joint mass celebration with St. Peters School, Mercy Burlingame Head of School, Karen Hanrahan took a moment at the end of mass to honor two Mercy students. Ms. Hanrahan announced that Julianna A. Bencze of Half Moon Bay and Sin Ting "Abby" Hui of Millbrae had been named Commended Students in the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are currently being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. These commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students that entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
We congratulate Julianna and Abby for their outstanding academic success!
