Seniors Michael Mueller and Mia Contreras received College Board Recognition for their achievements! The College Board National Recognition Programs create pathways to college for students from underrepresented communities by awarding them academic honors and connecting them with universities across the country. Students who earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year, excel on their PSAT/NMSQT, and identify as 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. Both Michael and Mia were selected for their excellence.
School counselor Jason Rhodes said, “Michael’s intentional approach extends far beyond the classroom - inside him burns a fire for success and a curious, observant mind. He is incredibly deserving of this academic recognition.”
School counselor Jeff Pastiak said, “I have had the joy of knowing Mia for the past two years. In her time at high school, Mia has participated in multiple advanced level classes, and she has excelled. Not only is she incredibly bright, but she has been quick to recognize when she is struggling and requires help. She is determined, independent, and incredibly smart. I only wish I could have known her all four years of high school.”
