(New York, NY—September 13, 2017) Bayonne resident Jeremy Lewan, a senior at High Tech, has been accepted into the 2017-2018 National Hispanic Recognition Program, which acknowledges about 5,000 academically outstanding students from more than 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT®, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High school.
To be eligible for the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP), students must possess at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino ancestry and achieve a specific high percentile PSAT/NMSQT score (1460/220 in New Jersey).
Students with a cumulative junior-year grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher and involved in extracurricular and community activities also receive designation as scholars. Lewan has received such a designation.
The NHRP proudly honors outstanding students like Lewan and makes their scholastic information available to subscribing colleges and universities.
“I'm very proud that I’ll be able to include recognition as a National Hispanic Recognition Scholar on my college, scholarship, internship, and job applications,” says Lewan, an inductee into the National Hispanic Honor Society at High Tech and gold medalist in the 2017 National Spanish Exam.
Lewan hopes to study meteorology after high school.
