Kaitlin Bianchi, Austin Williams, Sharon Tengolics and Sam Miller were chosen out of 235,000 candidates with grade point averages over a 3.5 as this year’s recipients of the National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars.
This program provides recognition for outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students. To receive this prestigious award you must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino, meet the minimum PSAT/NMSQT cutoff score for your state which varies each year. Honorable Mention Finalists need a GPA between 3.0 to 3.49 and Scholar Finalists need a minimum GPA of 3.5 and a 30 ACT or 1330 SAT. Each year, the NHRP identifies nearly five thousand students from the United States and U.S. Territories who take the PSAT/NMSQT and designate themselves as Hispanic/Latino. The NHRP does not provide a financial reward. Being named is an important academic recognition and the colleges participating in the program will receive this information.
