Two SPX students named National Hispanic Scholars

Published September 1, 2016

ATLANTA—Nicholas Caceres and Carson Seramur, students at St. Pius X High School, Atlanta, earned the honor of being among the top 2 percent of the more than 250,000 Hispanic students nationwide who have taken the PSAT examination.

They were named National Hispanic Scholars in the College Boards National Hispanic Recognition Program. Their achievement will be shared with subscribing colleges and universities.

St. Pius Principal Steve Spellman said, “We are very proud of Nicholas and Carson as they contribute to the legacy and historical academic success of our Hispanic students.”

Recognition is based on the student’s combined verbal, math and writing skill scores on the PSAT/NMSQT taken in the student’s junior year of high school. Students must also self-identify themselves as Hispanic on the PSAT/NMSQT. A minimum grade point average is established for the program and this academic information is requested directly from the high schools. In addition, a student must be one-quarter Hispanic/Latino.
