EDISON – The College Board has awarded recognition to Alyssa Kennedy of Elizabeth and Max Hernandez-Webster of Edison in the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP), officials from the Wardlaw-Hartridge School announced. Kennedy received recognition as a scholar and Hernandez-Webster was named honorable mention.
Students were selected based on their performance on the PSAT and their academic average. Kennedy and Hernandez-Webster were among only 5,000 students selected from a pool of more than 253,000 students.
Although the NHRP does not provide monetary awards, being named is an important academic achievement. The NHRP was initiated in 1983 to identify outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students.
