Academics have always been an important aspect of Cary Brown’s life.
Brown, a senior at Thomas Nelson High School, said his family has always held academics in high regard.
So when the 17-year-old Boston resident heard he was selected as a 2015 National Merit Commended Student, it was worth all the hard work he has put into school over the years.
“I’m proud of myself,” Brown said. “I know there are a lot of other people who came very close.”
