The Levittown School District is pleased to announce that Division Avenue High School senior Gabriela Pereira has been selected as a 2013 National Hispanic Recognition Program Scholar. 

The National Hispanic Recognition Program was established in 1983 through the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. This year, the program recognized only 5,300 outstanding Hispanic/Latino students nationwide. Qualifications for recognition were based on critical reading, mathematics and writing scores on the 2012 PSAT/NMSQT and a minimum GPA of 3.0.

 In addition, recipients of this honor must be Hispanic or Latino in origin. The NHRP sends a list of all recognized students to subscribing colleges and universities that are particularly interested in academically outstanding seniors of Hispanic/Latino heritage.

Gabriela was also recently named an Advanced Placement Scholar by the College Board, and she continues to challenge herself with a rigorous load of AP courses. In addition, she was a medalist in the New York State Science Olympiad, is an active member of the National Art Honor Society and is the recording secretary for the National Honor Society.
