Mission, Texas-Veterans Memorial High School (VMHS) had seven students earn the College Board National Hispanic Recognition Award. This award is bestowed upon students that have exceptional academic achievement in school, outstanding performance on any one of the exams in the SAT Suite of Assessments and identify as Hispanic.


The recipients of this award are, Brandon Molina, Damian Buitron-Adams, Ethan Zamora, Issac Trevino, Jasmine Lozano, Kaylee Gordon, and Noema Trevino.


Award consideration is for students that take the PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT10, or AP exams, must have a 3.5 GPA or higher at the time of submitting their application and must also have a permanent address in the United States.


The College Board’s National Recognition Program provides motivated and academically prepared students with a variety of opportunities. Students that take the PSAT/NMSQT can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program as well as other scholarships.


Those taking the PSAT 10 can measure their college readiness, have access to scholarships, and can also practice for the SAT. Students that take AP exams will take rigorous, college-level courses while still in high school. They can earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for their successful performance on the AP exams. The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP exams. 


The College Board is an organization that connects students to college success and provides them with opportunities. Every year, the College Board helps seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through their programs and services in college readiness and college success.
