Posted on 10/07/2019

National Hispanic Scholars Congratulations to Mason High School seniors Andrea Hefferan, Aron Olegnowicz, and Michael Valcarcel who were selected as National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars. This year, the program recognized roughly 5,000 outstanding Hispanic/Latino students of the 250,000 who take the test nationwide. Qualifications for recognition were based on critical reading, mathematics and writing scores on the 2018 PSAT and a minimum GPA of 3.5. In addition, recipients of this honor must be Hispanic or Latino in origin.

“We are very proud of each of these scholars accomplishments - both inside and outside the classroom,” says Bobby Dodd, MHS principal. “These students are outstanding representatives of Mason High School and our community, and we know that they will continue to make us proud.”

These National Hispanic Recognition Program scholars will be honored during the October 22 school board meeting.

The National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) was initiated in 1983 by the College Board to identify outstanding Hispanic high school students and to share information about these academically well-prepared students with subscribing colleges and universities. In order to be eligible, students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic. Each year the NHRP identifies approximately 7,000 of the highest scoring students from a nationwide total of 250,000 high school juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT and designated themselves as Hispanic, as well as approximately 200 of the top scoring PAA students from Puerto Rico. The nationwide selection also includes students from Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Mariana Islands, Marshall Islands, and U.S. citizens attending schools abroad.
