Davis Awarded with Academic Honors from College Board National Recognition Programs

Andrew Davis

Congratulations to our own Andrew Davis, who is one of 62,000 students from across the country to earn academic honors from the College Board’s 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 stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups through College Board’s Student Search Service.


Davis, a Junior at VHS, earned this recognition by excelling on his PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in the classroom. 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 attend school in a rural area or small town. Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and are awarded at the beginning of the next school year.


“We’re thrilled that Andrew has earned this recognition. We are very proud of him for his achievements in the classroom and on College Board assessments,” said VHS Principal Bruce Mulkey. “These programs help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during admissions.”


"Andrew earned this recognition because of his academic achievements in school and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT®, PSAT™ 10, and/or AP® Exams. Andrew accomplished these milestones during an immensely demanding period of his high school career. We couldn't be more delighted to share this great news." Said Mulkey.
