Two Seniors Awarded College Board National Recognition Program Scholars

Congratulations to two outstanding seniors, Gabriela Alvarez and Alexandra Rodriguez, who were recently named College Board National Recognition Program Scholars.

The invitation to apply for the College Board National Recognition Programs (CBRP) was extended only to those students at high schools across the country who scored in the top 2.5% of PSAT/NMSQT test takers and who identify as one or more of the following: African American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, or attend school in a rural area, or are from a small town.

During the past few months, all students who submitted an application to the College Board National Recognition Programs were evaluated and recognized accordingly. Eligible students must also have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.

"Approximately 5,000 Hispanic/Latinx students out of nearly 400,000 Hispanic/Latinx juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT last year were granted this honor," said Director of College Counseling Olivia Huie. "That works out to be 1.25%, which is highly competitive, so naturally we are very of Gabriela and Alexandra!"

Both Lady Lions will receive their award letters and certificates by the end of the month -- just in time to include them in their college and scholarship applications.
