Joliet Township High School is proud to announce that Joliet Central High School senior Raúl Muñoz earned the distinction of National Hispanic Scholar from the College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) for his academic excellence.
Every year, the NHRP recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who entered the 2018 competition by taking the 2016 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT).
The College Board’s NHRP program is an academic honor that can be included on college applications. It’s not a scholarship, but colleges do use this program to identify academically exceptional Hispanic/Latino students.
Raúl Muñoz said of the award, "I am overjoyed to have been recognized by College Board for this accomplishment. I’m very fortunate to learn in such a positive environment, that has lifted me up such success.”
JTHS congratulates Raúl Muñoz for receiving this highly competitive and prestigious academic recognition.
