Senior Lukas Moreno was recently named in the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) for his performance on the 2018 PSAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT). An invitation to apply for this program was extended to students who scored in the top 2.5% among Hispanic and Latino PSAT/NMSQT test takers in our region. Students who submitted an application were evaluated and recognized accordingly.
Each year, the NHRP identifies nearly 5,000 of the highest-scoring students from a nationwide total of more than 400,000 juniors in the United States and its territories who take the PSAT. The NHRP was initiated in 1983 to identify academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students and to share information with interested colleges and universities.
In order to be eligible, students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino as defined by the program guidelines, meet the minimum PSAT/NMSQT cutoff score for Texas, and achieve a minimum GPA of 3.5. The NHRP makes this information available to subscribing colleges and universities. Students are encouraged to indicate that they have been recognized as a NHRP Scholar on college scholarship, internship and job applications.
Congratulations, Lukas! We are proud of you!
