Superintendent Danny Massey expressed his pride in the students, saying, "We are proud of the outstanding accomplishments our students make each and every day, and this achievement further exemplifies the strong academic performance in our classrooms, acknowledged even at the national level."

The NHRA is a highly regarded distinction, and it signifies exceptional academic accomplishments among Hispanic American/Latino students. The College Board National Recognition Programs are designed to celebrate the exceptional efforts of high-performing students while highlighting their academic solid accomplishments. These honors are particularly significant for students from rural areas and those who identify as African American/Black, Hispanic American/Latino, or Indigenous/Native. The recognition programs provide students with an opportunity to showcase their achievements to colleges and scholarship programs actively seeking diverse and talented individuals.

The criteria for eligible students include:

  • A GPA of 3.5 or higher.
  • PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10 assessment scores that are within the top 10% of assessment takers in each state for each award program or earned a score of 3 or higher on 2 or more AP Exams in 9th and 10th grade.
  • Attendance at school in a rural area or small town, or identification as African American/Black, Hispanic American/Latino, or Indigenous/Native.

These NHRA honors serve as a testament to the commitment to excellence demonstrated by our students and underscore the importance of diversity and inclusion in higher education. For more information about the College Board National Recognition Programs, please visit the College Board website.
