COLLEGE BOARD RECOGNIZES LAMAR CISD STUDENTS
The College Board is honoring students from George Ranch, Foster and Terry high schools for their performances on the PSAT.
Terry’s Coles Jackson and George Ranch’s Grace Braun, Cara Coffman and Alexander Stockman are all National Merit Semifinalists.
About 16,000 students, or approximately one-third of the 50,000 high scorers, qualify as Semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state. NMSC provides scholarship application materials to Semifinalists through their high schools.
Terry’s Adrian Vela and George Ranch’s Elena Gehle, Elizabeth Lemkowitz, Jacob Liang, Michael Mpamaugo, Amelia Nelson, Tenzin Palkyi and Treeank Patnaik made the National Merit Commended list.
Foster’s Grace Delgado, Ornob Masud, Abdullah Mirza, Addison Savage and Andy Tran made the National Merit Commended list.
Only about 34,000 students in the nation receive the Letters of Commendation in recognition of their outstanding academic promise.
Foster’s Grace Delgado, Theresa Martinez, Kristen Rebeles, Jade Kanemitsu, Justin Garcia and Hannah Oman are also being honored as part of the National Hispanic Recognition Program.
Every year, about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic students taking the PSAT are recognized for their academic promise.
