Seven CHS students recognized as National Hispanic Scholars

Seven Cibola High School seniors were named as National Hispanic Scholars through the National Hispanic Recognition Program.

The students honored were Benjamin Cabrera, Margarita Golding, Chelsea Crumby, Alyssa Gomez, Everardo Uribe, Michael Acosta, and Victoria Hernandez.

According to their website, the College Board’s NHRP program is an academic honor that can be included on college applications. It’s not a scholarship, but colleges do use this program to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.

The College Board reaches out to students who:

  • Take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of their junior year
  • Are at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino
  • Achieve the minimum required PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score (this qualifying level may vary by state, region, and territory each year)
  • Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year

Every year, the NHRP recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the test.
