Frisco ISD has released the names of students who have been named scholars in the National Hispanic Recognition Program.
Every year, the National Hispanic Recognition Program recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the College Board exams. It 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.
Students are eligible to apply for recognition during their junior year if they are one/quarter Hispanic or Latino, achieve the minimum required PSAT/NMSQT Selection Index score (this qualifying level may vary by state, region, and territory each year) and earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.
The Frisco ISD students who have been identified include:
Centennial High School
Frisco High School
Heritage High School
Lone Star High School
Alessandra Garcia- Fuentes
Wakeland High School
