Tyler ISD scholars recognized

Three Tyler ISD high school students were recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program. Taylor Huckaby and Cole Paxson, both seniors at Robert E. Lee High School, received the National Merit Program Commendation recognition.
Andrea Huerta, a senior at John Tyler High School, received special recognition as a National Hispanic Achievement Scholar.
“We are extremely proud of Mr. Huckaby, Mr. Paxson, and Ms. Huerta for earning such high honors,” Randy Reid, Tyler ISD Superintendent, said. “These national recognitions are a testament to their hard work, as well as the work of our dedicated teaching staff.”
National Merit Program Commendation recognitions are bestowed upon roughly 34,000 of the over 1.5 million students nationwide who take the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Students who receive this recognition are candidates for special scholarships through the National Merit Scholarship Program.
The National Hispanic Achievement Scholar recognition is awarded to high-scoring Hispanic students on the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. Only the top two percent of Hispanic test takers receive this commendation.
