Cibola students named National Hispanic Scholars

Congratulations to these Cibola seniors for being named as National Hispanic Scholars through the National Hispanic Recognition Program: Andrea Camarillo, Elena Garcia, Valeria Garcia, Yefneit Hernandez, & Yesenia Siemens.

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.
