Devon Prep Senior Joshua Lieberman of Downingtown has been recognized as a National Hispanic Scholar by the College Board. Only 5,000 high scoring students among the more than 250,000 Hispanic/Latino juniors who took the 2013 PSAT/NMSQT received this recognition.
The College Board’s National Hispanic Recognition Program identifies academically outstanding Hispanic/Latino high school students from the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Mariana Islands and the Marshall Islands, as well as U.S. citizens attending schools abroad.
Last summer Lieberman was also awarded a full scholarship to attend the 2014 Telluride Association Summer Program (TASP), “Identity and Belonging from Primates to Posthumans,” at the University of Michigan.
TASP is a six-week educational program involving college-level seminars for gifted and highly motivated high school juniors. Only 64 students from 1,275 applications from around the world were chosen to participate.
In addition, Lieberman, a distinguished honor student at Devon Prep, was also recently named a National Merit Scholarship Program semi-finalist and an AP Scholar with Distinction.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
