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.
