Marietta High School student recognized

Marietta High School and the College Board Recognition Programs would like to recognize David Sarver for the honor of being identified as part of the Rural and Small Town Recognition Program and the Hispanic Recognition Program.

He is the son of Jon Sarver and the late Esther Sarver of Marietta.

Students who are considered for the Rural and Small Town Recognition Program is based on the location of their high school.

Areas are considered rural and small town based on location data from the National Center for Education Statistics. Students considered for the Hispanic Recognition Program must identify as Hispanic or Latinx and be permanent residents of the United States or a United States Territory.

The College Board, which administers the PSAT and SAT among its activities, recognizes academic excellence through its National Recognition Programs. Students selected for this prestigious honor can cite it on their college and scholarship applications.

In turn, colleges use the listing of this honor as a way of identifying students from underrepresented groups — i.e., ethnic minorities and/or those who attend school in rural areas or small towns — who have excelled on their PSAT/NMSQT, PSAT 10, or AP Exams and in their classwork.

In order to receive this honor, David took the PSAT in the fall of his junior year and scored in the top 10% by state. His current grade point average is at or over a 3.5.

This program is open to students who identify as African American or Black, Hispanic American or Latinx, Indigenous, or attend school in a rural or small town.
