Press release from Red Bank Regional High School
Recently, the Red Bank Regional Board of Education recently honored Halle Butler and Leah Roberts, both of Little Silver, and Sofia Dadap and Sara Halloran, both of Red Bank, for being named National Merit Commended Scholars. These awards are based on the students’ performance on the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying test. The National Merit Scholars represent the top 5% of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2012-2013 competition.
RBR Guidance Supervisor Dawn Kaszuba states of the students’ accomplishment, “This distinction is a testament to the commitment to excellence and hard work of these four young ladies. Interestingly, this year’s commended scholars are all a part of the VPA (Visual & Performing Arts Academy) program.”
