Felix Cruz receives academic honors from College Board National Recognition Programs

Cruz is one of only 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s National Recognition Programs! 

Felix Cruz has 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.

“I'm thrilled that Felix has earned this recognition. I am very proud of him for his achievements in the classrooms and on College Board assessments,” said Holland High School Principal Andrea Mehall.  “These programs help students stand out to colleges during admissions.” 

Students eligible for recognition have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score 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.
