CONGRATULATIONS FROM THE PRINCIPAL: Senior Class Principal John Chargois congratulates Union Senior Breann Borlay for being recognized as a National Commended Student for Scholarship.  

Senior Breann D. Borlay has been recognized as a Commended Student as part of the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. She is the daughter of Manjoe and Lucinda Borlay of Tulsa.
Senior Class Principal John Chargois recognized her in class recently and congratulated her on her accomplishment. He said Borlay missed being named a National Merit Semifinalist by just two points.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2020 competition for National Merit Scholarship (NMSC) awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the competition by taking the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.
“Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated potential for academic success,” commented a spokesman for the NMSC. “These students represent a valuable resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of education 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.”
The honors follow the announcement earlier in September of the six other Union students above who were named National Merit Semifinalists.
