HS Student Honored in National Hispanic Recognition Program

Congratulations to Syosset High School senior Brian Schultheis, who was recently named a National Hispanic Scholar in the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program. Brian scored in the top 2.5 percent among Hispanic/Latino students in the region on the 2014 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Additionally, he had to complete an extensive application for evaluation by the College Board.

Participation in the NHRP enables Hispanic/Latino students to further highlight their outstanding accomplishments to leading colleges and universities. In a survey of last year’s National Hispanic Scholars, 91 percent indicated that they felt recognition made them more competitive candidates for these schools.

Brian is congratulated by (from left) his guidance counselor, Christopher Kozlowsky, Syosset HS Principal Dr. Giovanni Durante and Assistant Principal Christopher Ruffini.
