    Hannah, you are the best daughter that any Dad could ever have!

    This is an incredible objective national honor. Millions of students are involved, but few are recognized:

    Program Recognition Students. The 50,000 top scorers on the PSAT are selected out of about 1.5 million entrants. …
    Semifinalists. …
    Commended Students. …
    Finalists. …
    Merit Scholars.

    These four students are very special. Congratulations and may you have continued success in your studies.
