MRH Student Selected as a National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar
Maplewood Richmond Heights High School‘s Zachary Arias, 12th grade, has been selected as a 2013-2014 National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) Scholar.
The National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) identifies academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students. Each year, the NHRP honors about 5,000 of the highest-scoring students from over 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT. These students are from the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Mariana Islands and the Marshall Islands, as well as U.S. citizens attending schools abroad.
Students recognized by the NHRP are at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino (based on the program's definition) and have achieved a minimum PSAT/NMSQT score for their region. Students with a junior year cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher are designated as Scholars.
Being recognized is an important academic achievement. In addition, the NHRP is proud to honor these outstanding students and to make their information available to subscribing four-year postsecondary institutions that are interested in communicating with academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.
Arias is an active student at MRH. He participates in Jazz Band and is a member of the Cross Country Team. In previous years he was also a member of the Chess Team.
“I felt excited about being selected as a scholar, this is a great opportunity and resume builder, I look forward to the opportunities that this recognition will bring,” said Arias.
Arias, who will graduate in MAY 2014, plans to major in Biomedical Engineering.
