Three IMSA Seniors Honored in National Hispanic Recognition Program

The College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) recognized three IMSA seniors with honorable mentions, an academic award that identifies outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students.nationalhispanicwinners.jpg

IMSA seniors Anthony Marquez of Plainfield, Cristina Menchaca of Brookfield, and Steven Kosvick of Bolingbrook were among nearly 5,300 students selected by the NHRP from a pool of over 259,000 who took the 2013 Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®). Students who have achieved a minimum PSAT/NMSQT/PAA score for their region are designated with honorable mentions.

The NHRP sends a list of all recognized students to subscribing colleges and universities that have specific interest in academically outstanding seniors of Hispanic/Latino heritage. The nationwide list includes students from the United States, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Mariana Islands and Marshall Islands, as well as U.S. citizens attending schools abroad.
