assessments and schoolwork to earn these awards 


Montgomery ISD students have earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs.  


These National Recognition Programs grant students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications to distinguish students to universities across the country, helping them meaningfully connect with colleges and stand out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service. 


“We’re thrilled for these outstanding Bears and Lions who have earned these recognitions. We are very proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms and on College Board assessments,” Montgomery ISD Superintendent Dr. Heath Morrison said. “These programs recognize hard work and help our students stand out during the college admissions process.” 


According to College Board information, 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 are African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, and/or attend school in a rural area or small town. 


“The recognitions earned by our students are particularly impressive in light of disruptions to the learning environment due to the pandemic,” MISD Board of Trustee Vice-President Laurie Turner. “This is another example of how our teachers and staff worked tirelessly to ensure that our students’ academic performance remained a top priority. I am proud of these remarkable students for representing our school district so well.”  


Eligible students are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and are awarded at the beginning of the following school year. Students receive their awards in time to include them in their college and scholarship applications.  


Congratulations to these Montgomery ISD honorees!
