Fontbonne celebrates the achievements of senior Sydney Joseph of Randolph. Miss Joseph has been invited to participate in the College Board National Recognition Programs.
Students who identify as African American, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous or attend school in a rural area and score in the top 2.5% on the PSAT are eligible for invitation. For example, each year, the National Hispanic Recognition Program honors about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic test-takers. Invited students must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.
Through this program, Miss Joseph will be provided with the opportunity to earn further academic recognition. The College Board also works to connect high-achievers like Miss Joseph with universities across the country.
“Fontbonne is so proud of Sydney's achievements. Her leadership and academic scholarship at Fontbonne are noteworthy. Her gracious spirit makes her an extraordinary scholar and leader. Sydney is a thoughtful leader who has a keen sense of understanding others and recognizing the gifts in every person,” said Ms. Maura Spignesi, Head of School.
Miss Joseph is also a 2020 recipient of the Suffolk Book Award.
