BASIS Goodyear Students Receive
National Recognition From College Board
Three students from BASIS Goodyear recently earned academic honors from the College Board National Recognition Programs. These awards celebrate academic achievement and help students stand out while applying for colleges and scholarships.
Every year, the College Board awards high-achieving African American, Hispanic, Indigenous, and rural students. The 2023 awardees from BASIS Goodyear are:
- Ryan Downs, Grade 11 (National Hispanic Recognition Award)
- Dana Gonzalez, Grade 12 (National Hispanic Recognition Award)
- Anthony Weefar, Grade 11 (National African American Recognition Award)
To be eligible for these awards, students must earn a GPA of 3.5 or higher and must have outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT®, PSAT™ 10, and/or AP® Exams.
The academic honors awarded by the College Board can be highly impactful as students plan for their futures, as many colleges and organizations specifically seek out College Board National Recognition award winners while recruiting.
“Words cannot express how proud we are to honor our three students for their academic achievements,” said Stephanie Savage, Head of School at BASIS Goodyear. “As a relatively new school, BASIS Goodyear has only had a few classes of graduating seniors, but our students are already leading the way for future classes of excellence.”
Congratulations to Ryan, Dana, and Anthony! We can’t wait to see what the three of you accomplish next!
