September 21, 2021
 
Hoover High School (HHS) is pleased to have received notification that three (3) of its students were named College Board National Recognition Programs scholars for their performance on the PSAT and/or AP exams during the 2020-2021 school year!
 
CONGRATULATIONS to the following juniors and seniors:

The College Board National Recognition Programs create pathways to college for underrepresented students by awarding them academic honors and connecting them with universities across the country.
 
To qualify for this honor, students must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher; excelled on the PSAT or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and identify as African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, or attend school in a rural or small town.
 
John Montgomery, Principal of Hoover High School, said, "We are very proud of our three students for being named as National African American Recognition Program Scholars. They are not only excellent in the classroom and great role models, but they are also leaders in our school. We look forward to following their future successes."
 
According to the College Board National Recognition Programs' website, the programs grant students academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications. Colleges use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups who have excelled on their PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in their classrooms. Universities and scholarship programs use a special database to locate students who are awarded this recognition.
 
HCS and HHS are very proud of these exceptionally bright students and wish them the best in their academic and collegiate futures!!
