Community Editor

Forest Lake Area High School seniors Noelle Gorka, Gabriel Robertson and Katherine Taylor have been named Commended Students in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program.
These seniors are among 34,000 students across the nation that have been recognized for their academic promise; however, they will not be continuing in the 2018 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards.

Of the 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, the commended students placed among the top 50,000 scorers. Each student will receive a Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
