Two Niceville HS Students Named National Merit Hispanic Scholars

Two Niceville High School Students, Andrew Kelleher and Richard Navarro, were recognized recently for being named National Merit Hispanic Scholars.

According to their website, the College Board’s 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.  Although the NHRP does not provide a financial reward, being named is an important academic recognition, and students can indicate this achievement on their college applications.  

Congratulations to Andrew and Richard!
