Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program
Los Alamos High School Principal Brad Parker is pleased to announce that eight students at the school have been named Commended Students in the 2016 National Merit Scholarship Program. “We are very pleased to recognize the academic achievement of these students and congratulate them on this honor,” said Parker. The students are: Nathan Delgado, Val Jackson-Hundley, Faith Koh, Faith Montano, Julia O’Brien, Kaelan Prime, Camille Rousculp and Sydney Schoonover. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, was presented by the principal to these scholastically talented students during a reception earlier today.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2016
competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2016 competition by taking the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented a spokesperson for NMSC. “These 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. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”

Here is an aerial video (about 4 minutes) of our LAHS Campus that was filmed by our Advanced Engineering Design class utilizing the quadcopter drone they built during the past weeks.
We managed to build, wire and program this advanced aerial robot with only very sketchy instructions. It was quite a learning experience for all and familiarized our engineering students with cutting edge 21st century technology.
If you DOWNLOAD it (takes a few minutes) you should be able to open it with Windows media Player.
