14 High School Students Named Scholars By The College Board

14 Union High School students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs.

They are:

National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars

  • Daniel Flores, son of Daniel Flores Meneses and Dalila Landa Garcia;
  • Destiny Reyes, daughter of Dominga Barrera and Felix Reyes;
  • Eduardo Barreda, son of Humberto Barreda and Luz Abarca;
  • Eduardo Perez, son of Samuel and Evangelina Perez;
  • Fernando Gaona, son of Baldemar and Bertelena Gaona;
  • Gonzalo Barreda, son of Humberto Barreda and Luz Abarca;
  • Isabelle Trevino, daughter of Chano and Tara Trevino;
  • Shane Houtmann-Harper, son of Elizabeth Harper;
  • Siannan Dunn, daughter of Jarrett and Lisa Dunn;
  • Ximena Maya Trevizo, daughter of Pedro Maya and Flor Trevizo Ramos.

National African American Recognition Program Scholars

  • Destiny Reyes, daughter of Dominga Barrera;
  • Olamide Yinusa, daughter of Morenike Yinusa;
  • Raelenn Muldrow, daughter of Owen Muldrow Jr., and Rachel Owens.

National Indigenous Recognition Program Scholar

  • Claire Baggett, daughter of Joel and Megan Baggett.

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.

“We’re thrilled that our students have earned this recognition. We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments,” said Principal Tony Tempest.

“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 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.

Eligible students will be invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and will be awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students will receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.

“By awarding students who excel academically with honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs, our aim is to create pathways to college for underrepresented students,” said Steve Bumbaugh, College Board senior vice president of College & Career Access. “We hope this inspires many more students to work toward this recognition.
