Pendleton High School Student Awarded with Academic Honors from College Board National Recognition Programs
Pendleton High School students excelled in College Board assessments and schoolwork to earn these awards, which colleges use to identify academically competitive underrepresented students.
Pendleton High School students have earned academic honors from the College Board 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 meaningfully connect to colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.
Abigail Thorne has been selected as a College Board National Rural and Small-Town Awardee.
“We’re thrilled that Abigail has earned this recognition. We are very proud of her for her achievements in the classrooms and on College Board assessments,” said Patrick Dutcher, Principal of Pendleton High School. “These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.”
Students who may be eligible have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams, and attended school in a rural area or small town.
“We want to honor the hard work of these students through the College Board National Recognition Programs. This program creates a way for colleges and scholarship programs to connect directly with underrepresented students who they are hoping to reach,” said Tarlin Ray, College Board senior vice president of Big Future. “We hope the award winners and their families celebrate this prestigious honor and it helps them plan for their big future.”
