Oak Ridge High Students Recognized as National Hispanic Scholars
Oak Ridge Seniors have five exceptional students who were named National Hispanic Scholars! Congratulations to Mya Briones, Maritza Herschmann, Virginia Batres, Ivanna Abi-Saab, and Nathan Stern for scoring “in the top 2.5% among Hispanic and Latino test takers in last year’s PSAT/NMSQT exam.”
Juniors who identify as Hispanic/Latino on the PSAT answer sheet are automatically entered to be considered in the National Hispanic Recognition Program. Students who meet the required score for recognition will then be required to complete an application and confirm their information and GPAs from their high schools.
The National Hispanic Recognition Program is directed by College Board and Scholarship America. Students are required to have a minimum 3.5 GPA, but GPAs not be considered until students become a Finalist in the program. “The National Hispanic Recognition Program does not impact National Merit status. Students can be recognized by both programs.”
