As a result, Diego has been invited to participate in the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP).

Diego is the son of Diego and Amy Silva of Lake Jackson. He is active on campus in the Chamber Orchestra, National Honor Society, Spanish National Honor Society and the Rocketry Team. He is deciding on his future career in either Marine Biology or Atomic Chemistry and considering schools such as Rice, University of Texas or Texas A&M Galveston.

“This is more great evidence of how well our students are prepared for college and achieving at exceptionally high levels,” said Brazosport ISD Superintendent of Schools Danny Massey.

The NHRP was initiated in 1983 by the College Board to identify outstanding Hispanic high school students. The College Board’s NHRP program is an academic honor that colleges use to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students. Qualification for recognition is based on the student's combined verbal, math, and writing skill scores on the PSAT/NMSQT taken in the student's junior year of high school.

He will go on to compete at the National level for further recognition as a “scholar” with scholarship opportunities.
