Three Students Commended for PSAT Scores

Three members of the Class of the 2018 were given Letters of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship program for their high scores on the Preliminary SAT.

Emery Monnig, Eric Peters  and Paul Wittmann were each recognized for their outstanding test scores.

"I feel like it certainly says something about CJ that we were so well prepared," said Wittmann.

He noted that the University of Dayton, University of Cincinnati and the Ohio State University are among his top choices to attend after CJ, with a focus on mechanical engineering.

"I have no idea which college I want to go to yet, but I really hope to study some type of engineering," Monnig reflected.

Peters noted, "I hope to attend Vanderbilt University with a major in business and a minor in psychology."

All three seniors are involved in extra curriculars at CJ. Monnig is a member of the soccer and swimming teams, along with JCOWA and Eagle Ambassadors. Peters is on the varsity baseball team. Wittmann is also an Eagle Ambassador, a member of the rowing team, ski club and Busted Box Improv Troupe.

When reflecting on their time at CJ, both Monnig and Wittmann shared that Project Lead the Way courses have been some of their favorite classes.

"My favorite class at CJ has been AP Psychology, which I am currently enrolled in," Peters said. "I thoroughly enjoy the workings of the human mind and the explanations for tendencies and behaviors that I and everyone around me experience every minute of every day."

Since 2013, CJ has had 14 National Merit Scholars. Learn more about the National Merit Scholarship program here.
