by cnewman

Mrs. Margaret Staszak, Principal of Mount Mercy Academy, announced today that MMA student Caitlin Matuszak, daughter of Mrs. and Mr. Russell Matuszak of West Seneca, NY, has been named a Commended Student in the 2014 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior. Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2014 competition by taking the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Commended Students represent some of the most academically talented student in the United States. Mount Mercy Academy extends sincere congratulations to Caitlin Matuszak and her family.

"Mount Mercy has taught me some of the most important things in my life and I am so grateful for that. I know that incorporating the principles of a woman of Mercy has made me the best version of myself. I can only hope that in the future, I will continue to grow and teach others the valuable lessons that I was taught at Mount Mercy. While I have learned so many things here, the greatest thing by far that I have learned is that DNA does not always make a family, love makes a family and that is exactly what I have gained here, a second family."
