Senior Matthew Kuhn was honored today for two separate academic achievements.

Kuhn received a commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for his achievement on the PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Out of over a million and a half entrants, only 34,000 receive a commendation for their scores, and some of these students may be candidates for special scholarships by corporate and business sponsors.

Kuhn was also recognized by the National Academy of Future Scientists and Technologists for outstanding academic performance, leadership potential, and dedication to serving humanity through science, technology, engineering or math. He was nominated to represent Dayton Christian School at a three-day conference last June in Boston where he was able to hear speakers such as Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, and David Wineland, Ph.D., winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physics.

To what does Kuhn attribute his success?

“My parents,” Matthew said. “They push me to be the best I can be.”

With such a great start to his resume, you may wonder what his future plans are.

“I want to go to the Air Force Academy,” said Kuhn. “That’s my first choice. I plan to study computer science with an emphasis on .”

Congratulations, Matthew, on your achievements and my God bless you!
