“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” according to a NMSP statement. “Those 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.”
