MHS students earn National Hispanic Recognition

Mission, Texas - Five students from Mission High School (MHS), have been recognized by the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP). This program provides academic achievement honor awards to underrepresented students.  


The following students have been recognized as Scholars in the program – Noe Pena, Camila Urquizo, Vanessa Villegas, Leslie Garza, and Alexa Tovar. 


Students are considered for awards by taking the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and by identifying themselves as Hispanic. The student must also have a 3.5 GPA or higher at the time of submitting the application, and must have a permanent address in the United States.

Each year, College Board helps more than seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success—including the SAT, the Advanced Placement Program, and BigFuture.
