Seniors Eduardo Barreda, Jacob Griffiths Named Commended Students

Union High School seniors Eduardo Barreda and Jacob Griffiths have been recognized as Commended Students as part of the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program. Eduardo is the son of Humberto Barreda and Luz Abarca of Broken Arrow and Jacob is the son of Daniel and Tara Griffiths of Tulsa.

About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2022 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 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 11 other Union students who were named National Merit Semifinalists.
