We are incredibly proud to celebrate the exceptional achievements of our students who have received the National Rural and Small Town Award (NRSTA) from the College Board. This prestigious recognition is a testament to their hard work, dedication, and commitment to academic excellence.

Meet our outstanding students:

  • Elena Fowle

  • Larissa Koth

  • Mitchell Brasier

  • Nolan Mandernach

The College Board's National Recognition Programs aim to honor the strong academic achievements of underrepresented students. Our students, including Elena, Larissa, Mitchell, and Nolan, have not only excelled academically but have also showcased their unique talents and abilities.

These programs offer valuable opportunities for students to stand out and highlight their achievements during their high school journey. Eligible students, with a GPA of 3.5 or higher, ranking in the top 10% of PSAT/NMSQT® or PSAT™ 10 test-takers in their state, or earning a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP® Exams, are invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year.

Congratulations once again to Elena Fowle, Larissa Koth, Mitchell Brasier, and Nolan Mandernach for this outstanding achievement! Your accomplishments inspire us all and reflect the bright future ahead of you.
