ST. MARYS — Four students from St. Marys High School have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs.
Allison Amos, Kamryn Armstrong, Jacob Lowther and Ian Niemczyk, members of the Class of 2023, excelled in College Board assessments and schoolwork to earn the awards, which colleges use to academically identify competitive underrepresented students
The 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 connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.
“We’re thrilled that our students have earned this recognition. We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments,” said St. Marys High School Counselor Loura Rinard. “These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.”
Students who 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 or attend school in a rural area or small town are eligible.
