Academic Honors for Islip Seniors

The National Achievement Scholarship Program recognized Islip High School seniors Budie Kadir and Isabelle Lamarre as a semifinalist and Outstanding Participant, respectively, due to their high academic achievement and success on the 2012 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

The National Achievement Scholarship Program is an academic competition established in 1964 to provide recognition for outstanding Black American high school students. Of the more than 160,000 students who enter the National Achievement Program each year, approximately 4,700 are honored. Of those 4,700, only 1,600 participants qualify as semifinalists and continue on in the competition for scholarship awards.

In addition to being named a National Achievement semifinalist, Budie was also named a Commended Student in the National Merit Scholarship Program.
