Steele Student Recognized as National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar
Northwest ISD’s James M. Steele Accelerated High School senior Eric Trevino is being recognized as a 2015-16 National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) Scholar. Trevino is one of 5,000 academically outstanding students representing more than 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the PSAT/NMSQT. Approximately 200 of the top-scoring PAA students from Puerto Rico are also included.
To be eligible, students must be at least one-quarter Hispanic/Latino and achieve a minimum PSAT/NMSQT or PAA score for their region. Students with a cumulative junior year grade-point average of 3.5 or higher are designated as Scholars.
“I am not surprised Eric has been selected for this honor,” said Steele Accelerated High School Principal Robin Ellis. “He is an exceptional student and has a clear focus on his future plans.”
Trevino is planning to attend Stanford University and major in Pre-Med.
