(St. Peter, MN—March 17, 2016) Four High Tech High School students scored in the top 2.5% on the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT©), based on regional results from among Hispanic and Latino test-takers, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech.
The following young scholars have been invited to participate in the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP): Bayonne resident Sophia Velasquez, Juan Meza and Gabriella Navas of Jersey City, and North Bergen resident Malena Rodriguez.
Each year, the NHRP recognizes approximately 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT©.
Totally free of charge, participation in the NHRP enables students to highlight their outstanding academic achievements on college and university applications. Although not a scholarship, the NHRP does allow institutions of higher learning to identify those academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students all across America.
