Two CCHS juniors recieve PSAT certificates of excellence

Cook County High School Principal Gwen Carman proudly 
presented certificates of excellence to CCHS juniors Mara MacDonnell 
and Sarah Larsen last week.  Mara and Sara both scored in the top 3% 
of all students in the nation taking the preliminary scholastic 
assessment test (PSAT).  Their scores qualify them for the college 
plans reporting service.  In addition, each student will be notified 
in September whether or not she has been named a National Merit 
Program semifinalist. Semifinalists have the opportunity to continue
in the competition for receiving a National Merit Scholarship.  
Congratulations Mara and Sarah!
