HHS Senior Luke Lagando has showcased his talents as a student, member of the academic challenge team, captain of the football team, member of the basketball and tennis teams. On Monday, the National Merit Scholarship Corp. shared yet another honor for the 17 year old and announced that he is among a select group of seniors nationwide that are recognized as commended students.

Across the country, some 34,000 have been designated as commended students and represent less than three percent of U.S. high school seniors who took the test. The commended students are seniors who scored the highest on the 2019 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

Luke is the son of Pat and Krista Lagando. Congratulations Luke
