Two East Islip seniors were recently named as Commended Students by the 2013 National Merit Scholarship Program. Julia O’Connor and Peter Zeff were recognized for their outstanding qualifying test results, placing among the top 5 percent nationwide out of the more than 1.5 million students who competed in the program by taking the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
