A senior at Don Bosco Technical Institute (Bosco Tech) has been named a Commended Student in the 2018 National Merit Scholarship Program. Daniel Hosseini, of the Tech’s Architecture & Construction Engineering program, will be presented with a certificate of commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. These students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
“The young men and women being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success,” commented an NMSC spokesperson. “These students represent a valuable national resource: recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation.”
Hosseini is a drum major and student leader in Bosco Tech’s music program and a member of Cal State Los Angeles’ honor band. He plans to study civil engineering in college and recently completed a rigorous summer internship at JMD Engineering which provides full-service planning, engineering and management services to transportation and land development projects across Southern California.
