Congratulations to Mogadore's own Alejandro Navarrete, who is one of 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board's National Recognition Programs! These National Recognition Programs grant underrepresented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, helping them stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board's Student Search Service.

Alejandro earned this recognition by excelling on his PSAT/NMSQT Exam and in his academics. Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or high and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned as core of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year, and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.
