Eastside Catholic School proudly announces that senior Carmen D. was selected for the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP). Like the National Merit Scholarship program, the NHRP recognizes Hispanic/Latino students for their academic achievements and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT and communicates their achievements to more than 1,500 colleges nationwide.
"It is our great honor and privilege to commend Carmen for earning this wonderful and well-deserved recognition," High School Principal Ryan Aiello said. "This is an incredible achievement and we're extremely proud of her work!"
NHRP eligibility requires that students take the PSAT/NMSQT during their sophomore or junior year, identify as Hispanic American or Latino, achieve the required PSAT Selection Index score and earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.
College Board recognized 62,000 students through the College Board National Recognition Programs for excelling in their classrooms and on College Board assessments. More than 180,000 students from all 50 states were eligible to apply for the College Board National Recognition Programs, which grant students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through the College Board’s Student Search Service.
