Four Sacred Heart Greenwich students were honored by the College Board Recognition Program. Students Karina Adams, Natalie Dosmond and Francisca Iraola were named National Hispanic Scholars and Destini-Joy Green was named a National African American Scholar. The programs are meant to create pathways to college for students from underrepresented communities by awarding them academic honors and connecting them with universities, according to the College Board website.
Students who take the PSAT or National Merit Scholar Qualifying Test and are African American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, or attend school in a rural area or small town, may be invited to apply for academic recognition as part of the College Board National Recognition Programs. To qualify, students must score within the top 2.5 percent of PSAT or NMSQT test-takers and earn at least a 3.5 grade point average.
