Congratulations to Academy senior Sylvia Rodriquez on being honored for ‘Outstanding Academic Achievement’ in the National Hispanic Recognition Program sponsored by the College Board. Currently, Sylvia is one of 5,000 Hispanic/Latino seniors recognized nationwide out of approximately 400,000 juniors who took the PSAT last academic year. “We’re all so proud of Sylvia for earning this well-deserved recognition from the College Board,” remarks Dr. Olufowote, Director of Academic Affairs. “I also learned that Sylvia participated in CampMedic, sponsored by the College of Health at Ball State University over the summer and will be interning at a local animal clinic this Fall. Clearly Sylvia is a student poised to make a difference in the communities she serves and we look forward to benefitting from her presence and learning from her example for another academic year!”
