Recently four Guilderland High School students were selected as College Board National Recognition Program awardees.
The GHS students who earned awards are:
Leanne Airhienbuwa, National African American Recognition Award (NAARA)
Sadie Blattstein, National Hispanic Recognition Award (NHRA)
Kwabena Frimpong, National African American Recognition Award (NAARA)
Abigayle Tyson, National African American Recognition Award (NAARA)
These students were honored because of their academic achievements and outstanding performance; they met the eligibility requirements of a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams. Students eligible for the College Board National Recognition Programs are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. The GHS students earned awards from the National African American Recognition Program and the National Hispanic Recognition Program.
Created in 2019, these College Board National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications. These programs connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded these honors through the College Board’s Student Search Service.
Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.
Congratulations to all four GHS students on this academic achievement!
