Congratulations to TMS senior, Sophie Maestas, who is one of 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board's National Recognition Programs! She has been awarded the National Hispanic Recognition Award and the National Indigenous Award.
These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board's Student Search Service.
Sophie Maestas earned these awards by having a GPA of 3.5 or higher and by excelling on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or by earning a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams while representing the Hispanic and Indigenous communities. Other awards were given to accomplished African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, or Indigenous students, and/or those who attended 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.
