East Meadow High School seniors Ariana Adames, Patrick Cruz and Callie Quinones have been named 2017 National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholars. 

The NHRP was established in 1983 through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation and honors about 5,000 or 2.5 percent of the highest-scoring students from over 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Qualifications for recognition are based on critical reading, mathematics and writing scores on the PSAT/NMSQT and a minimum GPA of 3.5. 

Although there is no financial reward, recipients receive a certificate and the NHRP sends a list of all recognized students to subscribing colleges and universities.

The district congratulates Ariana, Patrick and Callie on this exceptional award and wishes them a successful senior year.
