Lynbrook High School senior Dustin Mandell was recently recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program as a Commended Student based upon his excellent 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test score. 

Approximately 1.6 million students take the exam each year. Mandell is among 34,000 students of the 50,000 high scorers who took the exam to be named a Commended Student in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program for his exceptional academic promise. Although Commended Students do not continue in the competition for National Merit Scholarships, some of these students do become candidates for Special Scholarships sponsored by corporations and businesses.

Aside from his strong academic skills, Mandell is a member of the tennis team, serves as president of Lynbrook High School’s Student Government Association and is the Editor and Chief of the school newspaper.

“Dustin is a remarkable individual. He is not only intelligent and driven but also humble and kind,” said guidance counselor Melissa Marr. “Learning he was named a Commended Student in the National Merit Scholarship Competition brought a smile to my face as it’s well deserved. He makes us all proud!”
