Christ the King Regional High School Principal Peter Mannarino (left) recently announced that seniors Christian Rodriguez, Jessica Guarneri and David Serrano (left to right), as well as Brandon Alfred (not pictured), were recognized by the College Board’s National Hispanic/African-American Recognition Program. School guidance counselor Melanie Thomas (right) joined the students.
The National Hispanic/African-American Recognition Program is a College Board program that recognizes exceptional academic achievements of Hispanic and African-American high school seniors. Students enter the program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) as high school juniors and by identifying themselves as Hispanic or African-American. This year more than 196,000 PSAT/NMSQT participants nationwide identified themselves as Hispanic or African-American and about 2 percent of those students have been recognized as National Hispanic/African-American Scholars.
