Kerrville, TX (Sept. 26, 2022) – Several Tivy High School students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs recently.
These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.
Students earning the National Rural and Small Town Award are: Aaron Peschel, Aby Hudsonpillar, Alexandria Finch, Benjamin Butler, Britney Tran, Cade Braaten, Delaney Engstrom, Grant Caraway, Hattie Ahrens, Isabella Barker, Jacob Flores, Kendal Burchers-Brown, Mirna Taha, Nathan Halpin, Seth Dohmann and Tristan Mosty.
Students earning the National Hispanic Recognition Award include Isabella Barker and Maddox Lozano.
Jacob Flores also earned the National African American Recognition Award.
“We’re thrilled that our students have earned this recognition. We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments,” said Tivy High School Principal Shelby Balser. “These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.”
Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students will be invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and will be awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students will receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.
