Three HHS seniors named NHRP Scholars

The 2016-17 National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) selected Aidan Giddings, Paul Rodriguez and Gabriela Trejo from the Harlandale High School Class of 2017 as National Hispanic Scholars.

Students who scored in the top 2.5 percent among Hispanic and Latino PSAT/NMSQT test takers in the region were invited to apply to the program by College Board.  

Participation in the National Hispanic Recognition Program enables students to highlight their outstanding educational achievements to top colleges and universities.

“It’s amazing to be recognized and it shows that hard work does eventually pay off,” Gabriela said.

She is still undecided as to what university she will attend after graduation, but she has her heart set on a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. After that, she hopes to earn her master’s degree and doctorate to eventually become a psychologist. 

Paul is hoping to attend UT Austin in the fall to start his journey toward a Bachelor of Science in computer science.

As for Aidan, he is still undecided as to what university he will attend and what field he wants to study, but one thing is for sure: he is going to college. 

Harlandale High School Lead Counselor Denise Flores is proud of her students for utilizing their talents and the support offered to them. 

“These students are so strong academically and it’s a huge distinction to be a part of the National Hispanic Program because they look for the most academically strong Hispanic in the nation,” Flores said. “To have our students recognized and be a part of that is a great honor, I’m happy for them and their families.”
