Frame those honors

Cheers to Xaverian High School seniors Patrick Coen and Michael Darby for being named semi-finalists in the 59th annual National Merit Scholarship program.

The budding brainiacs were so excited to hear the great news that they couldn’t wait to share it with Standing O.

“It’s a really big accomplish­ment,” said Patrick, who is flying high on cloud nine since being elected vice president of Xaverian’s Student Coordinating Council. He plans on studying engineering in college.

Michael is so busy working on his Eagle Scout project and deciding what his major will be, that he was completely floored when the news came down.

“I’m torn between business, engineering, and math, but I am applying to Harvard,” said the honoree, also a member of the Dramatic Society and the Young Democratic Club.

Way to go, guys! Standing O wishes the pair good luck, and can’t wait to dispatch shout outs when they move their tassels over to the right on graduation day next year.

Xaverian High School [7100 Shore Rd. at 71st Street in Bay Ridge, (718) 759–5728].
