Marlton, NJ – Donna Charlesworth, Principal of Cherokee High School is very pleased to announce that Leah Kaup, Wilson Leung, Satwik Peela, Christian Schad and Joshua Wright have been named Commended Students in the 2022 National Merit Scholarship Program.
A Letter of Commendation from Cherokee and the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) will be presented by Mrs. Charlesworth to these five scholastically talented seniors.
Approximately 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise.

According to a representative for MNSC, “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.
We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success.”
