Tivy Student Honored by National Hispanic Recognition Program

 Tivy High School student, Oscar De La Garza, has earned recognition through the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) based on scores on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).

The College Board’s NHRP honors approximately 5,000 of the highest-scoring Hispanic and Latino 11th-grade students who take the PSAT/NMSQT. Students who received this recognition scored in the top 2.5 percent among Hispanic and Latino test takers.

To be eligible, students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino and must take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of their junior year. They must also achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their 11th-grade year.  The College Board’s NHRP program is an academic honor that can be included on college applications. Colleges use this program to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.
