Eight Clinton High School students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs.

 

Madison Green and Mikayla Bibb were both awarded with the National African American Regional Award.

 

Abigail Young, Caleb Zmitrovich, Emma May, Kaylee Wrather, Kristine Van and Sam Connelly were awarded with the National Rural and Small Town Award. Also recognized for being awarded the NRSTA in 2021 was Katherine Tracy.

 

These National recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included in college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. 

 

Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.

 

“We are thrilled that our students have earned this recognition,” Clinton High School counselor Dana Wright said. “We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments.”

 

Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT. Students must also be African American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town.

 

“We want to honor the hard work of these students through the College Board National Recognition Programs,” said Tarlin Ray, College Board senior vice president of BigFuture. “We hope the award winners and their families celebrate this prestigious honor and it helps them plan for their big future.”
