In August 2022, the College Board is awarding 62,000 students from across the country with academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs for excelling in their classrooms and on College Board assessments. More than 180,000 students from all 50 states were eligible to apply for the College Board National Recognition Programs, which grant students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications.  Students earn this recognition by excelling on their PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in their classrooms. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year, and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.

Congratulations to the following Early College students who were recognized:

Alysa Benton and Seann Froi Hijada won the "National Rural and Small Town Award."

Francisco Terrazas and Evan Buendia won the "National Hispanic Recognition Award."

Congrats to all four! We at ECHS are proud of you!
