Milton Student Earns National Academic Accolades
Peter K. Timmins of Milton, a senior at Boston College High School, earned recognition as a Commended Scholar in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
Timmins was one of 22 BC High seniors chosen based on their outstanding performance on the PSAT in the state, and are among the top 5 percent of all students taking the Test (PSAT/NMSQT) nationally. Massachusetts is among the most difficult states in which to achieve this honor, as the cutoff score for recognition is tied for the highest in the country.
"We recognize these gentlemen for their demonstrated pursuit of excellence," said BC High Principal Stephen Hughes '73. "We hold them up as models and reminders for all of us, as we seek the pursuit of excellence in all aspects of our lives."
Boston College High School is a Jesuit, Catholic, college-preparatory school for young men founded in 1863. The school enrolls approximately 1500 students from more than 100 communities in eastern Massachusetts. For more http://www.bchigh.edu
