March 31, 2016 - Valley Central High School junior PSAT/NMST scores in the top 2.5% among Hispanic students
Valley Central High School student Nicolas Collazos was invited
to participate in the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program
(NHRP). Nicolas received the opportunity to apply for this distinction by
scoring in the top 2.5% among Hispanic and Latino students on the PSAT/NMST.
According to the College Board’s website, the NHRP is an
academic honor that colleges use to identify outstanding students of Hispanic
descent. Out of the 250,000 students who take the test, the College Board
recognizes about 5,000 through the NHRP.
In addition to his academic achievements, Nicolas is active
in sports and extracurricular activities including the track team, football
team and math team. While he’s still exploring college options, he’s leaning
towards studying civil engineering.
“We are proud of Nicolas’s accomplishments and wish him
future success in the participation in the NHRP,” Jayme Ginda-Baxter, principal
of Valley Central School District said.
