Eight Roncalli seniors have earned the distinction of being named National Merit commended students. The honor, based on students’ PSAT scores their junior year, is bestowed on the top 3 percent of the brightest seniors in the United States.
Roncalli educator Robyn Witty has been recognized by the Indiana Department of Education for being one of the four state finalists in the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. The awards are the country’s highest honors for teachers of math and science (including computer science).
Witty and her colleagues will receive a certificate signed by President Trump, a trip to Washington, D.C., to attend a series of recognition events and professional development opportunities and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation.
