27 Students Earn National Hispanic Recognition  Title from College Board

A total of twenty-seven United ISD high school students earned the coveted 2019-20 award from the National Hispanic Recognition Program of the College Board. The program identifies academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students.

To be eligible for this award, students must meet the following requirements:

·      Take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of their junior year

·      Be of at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino

·      Achieve the minimum required PSAT/NMSQTSelection Index score (this qualifying level may vary by state, region, and territory each year)

·      Earn a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year

The College Board does not accept modifications to these requirements. Students who take the PSAT/NMSQT in 9th or 10th grade must take it again in 11th grade to be eligible.

“On behalf of our Board of Trustees, I would like to congratulate these exceptional high school students for going above and beyond their academic pursuits,” said United ISD Superintendent Roberto J. Santos. “May they continue to be educational role models for their peers and we wish them continued success in the future,”

These students are from the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Mariana Islands, and The Marshall Islands, as well as U.S. citizens attending schools aboard. Approximately 200 of the top-scoring PAA™ students from Puerto Rico are also included.
