Chloe Amaya, a senior at Hall High School, has been named as a 2018 National Hispanic Scholar by the National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP).

The NHRP was initiated in 1983, by the College Board, to identify outstanding Hispanic high school students and to share information about these academically well-prepared students with subscribing colleges and universities. Chloe is the only Hall student honored in the category this year.

Each year the NHRP identifies approximately 5,000 of the highest scoring students from a nationwide total of 250,000 high school juniors who took the PSAT/NMSQT and designated themselves as Hispanic as well as approximately 200 of the top scoring PAA students from Puerto Rico. The nationwide selection also includes students from Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, and U.S. citizens attending international and APO schools.
