SHS Seniors Named College Board National Recognition Program Scholars

Seven Syosset students have been recognized as College Board National Recognition Program scholars. The National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students this honor based on their remarkable academic achievements and outstanding performances on the PSAT and/or AP exams.  

The high school seniors were recognized across three programs, with two students receiving honors in multiple programs. Students Noa Gluck, Alexandra Marin, Amanda Obedian, Julia Schenone, Emma Staller, and David Surber were named College Board National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars. Sariah Clervoix and Amanda Marin were both selected as College Board National African American Recognition Program Scholars, and Amanda Obedian was additionally designated as a College Board National Indigenous Recognition Program Scholar.

“We are so pleased to celebrate this prestigious honor for our students,” said Syosset High School principal Dr. Giovanni Durante. “We are incredibly proud of them and of their achievements in their classrooms and on their College Board assessments.”

The Syosset scholars are among the 32,000 students from across the country who were eligible for this honor who have excelled in their PSAT/NMSQT exams, identify as African American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP exams and have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher.
