Commack High School senior, Deniz Sinar, was named a 2019 National Merit Scholarship winner. The competition is based on very high academic achievement and other requirements.  Only 2,500 winners are chosen for the $2,500 scholarship from a field of 1.6 million students who applied. 

Deniz loves science, and will study biological engineering at Cornell University in the fall. She is a member of Commack High School’s top cohort academic group and is pursuing an International Baccalaureate Diploma.  Deniz has selected our school’s most challenging classes such as Higher Level Math and Chemistry.  From the Cold Spring Harbor labs, Hofstra University Summer Science Program to Columbia University Science Honors Program, Deniz is busy pursuing her greatest passion, microbiology. Her ultimate goal is to improve the condition of our environment, so that all living things may thrive.

NYS Senator Jim Gaughran, Chair of Education Committee, visited the High School on the day Deniz’s photo was taken. He will be issuing a proclamation as well.
