Three Goochland High School students were recently recognized by the College Board for PSAT/NMSQT scores in the top 10 percent in Virginia.

Alex Geyer, Cooper Dewitt, and Brookelyn Green were awarded the National Rural and Small Town Recognition Award, an award granted to students who attend a school that the Census Bureau identifies as a rural area or small town.

The College Board National Recognition Programs grant students academic honors that can be included on college and scholarship applications. Colleges use these honors to identify students from underrepresented groups who have excelled in the classroom and on the PSAT/NMSQT, the PSAT 10, or AP Exams. Students must also have at least a 3.5-grade point average to be eligible for recognition.

Alex Geyer is a senior enrolled in Blue Ridge Virtual Governor’s School (BRVGS) and the Advance College Academy (ACA) program. Cooper Dewitt is a junior and is enrolled in BRVGS. Brookelyn Green is a junior and participates in both BRVGS and the ACA program.
