MARTINSVILLE—Five Pingry seniors have been selected as Scholars or Honorable Mention recipients, based on their academic achievement, in the 2012-13 National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP). This program was initiated in 1983 to identify outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students.

This year, the NHRP is recognizing about 5,000 students selected from a pool of over 253,000 students who took the 2011 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test/Prueba de Aptitud Académica (PSAT/NMSQT/PAA) and identified themselves as Hispanic/Latino. Students recognized by the NHRP are at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino—based on the program’s definition—and have achieved a minimum PSAT/NMSQT/PAA score for their region.

The recipients:

  • Michael Arrom, Honorable Mention (Warren)
  • Kevin Baquero, Scholar (Elizabeth)
  • Leah Greer, Scholar (Basking Ridge)
  • Ben Herrera, Honorable Mention (Branchburg)
