Ricard Engel
September 26, 2013
U of D Jesuit High School and Academy senior and Grosse Pointe Park resident Ricardo Engel’s performance on the October 2012 PSAT and overall achievement in the classroom earned him recognition from The College Board as a 2013-2014 National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar.

Initiated in 1983 the NHRP identifies outstanding Hispanic and Latino students. This year, it recognized about 5,300 students from a pool of 259,000 across the country.

For consideration, students had to meet or exceed the required cutoff score on the PSAT, earn a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher by junior year’s end, and be of at least one-quarter Hispanic or Latino descent.

According to The College Board website, while the recognition doesn’t offer financial reward, “being named is an important academic recognition, and this achievement should be indicated on your college applications.”
