Lenape Technical School student Matthew Pascucci excelled in College Board assessments and schoolwork to earn these awards, which colleges use to identify academically competitive underrepresented students.
Matthew has earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs which recognizes under-represented students with academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications and connect students with universities across the country, standing out during the admissions process. Colleges and scholarship programs identify students awarded National African American, Hispanic, Indigenous and/or Rural/Small Town Recognition through College Board’s Student Search Service.
Matthew is a senior enrolled in Lenape Tech’s Computer Information Technology Program and is from the Freeport Area School District. Matthew’s plan is to attend Robert Morris University majoring in Cyber Security, with a career goal of working in a cybersecurity role in a governmental agency.
“Lenape Tech is thrilled that Matthew has earned this recognition. We are very proud of him for this achievement in the classroom and on College Board assessments,” said Administrative Director Wesley Kuchta “Matthew is an example of a highly performing academic student who has made a career choice to attend Lenape Tech and began to follow that path to future success”.
Recognition eligibility is based on having a GPA of 3.5 or higher and having excelled on the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or earned a score of 3 or higher on two or more AP Exams; and his attendance at a school in a rural area or small
Eligible students will be invited to apply during their sophomore or junior year and will be awarded at the beginning of the next school year. Students will receive their awards in time to include them on their college and scholarship applications.
“We want to honor the hard work of these students through the College Board National Recognition Programs. This program creates a way for colleges and scholarship programs to connect directly with under-represented students who they are hoping to reach,” said Tarlin Ray, College Board senior vice president of BigFuture. “We hope the award winners and their families celebrate this prestigious honor and it helps them plan for their big future.”
Lenape Tech is proud of Matthew and congratulates him on his recognition!
