Cooper Students Named Scholars by National Hispanic Recognition Program

The 2015 National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) named John Cooper School seniors Francisco Masuelli and Hannah Weinstein with Scholar recognitions.
Established in 1983, the National Hispanic Recognition Program is a College Board program that provides national recognition of the exceptional academic achievements of Hispanic/Latino high school seniors and identifies them for post-secondary institutions.
Upon graduation next May, Masuelli will be named a Cooper Pioneer, meaning he has attended the pre-k through grade 12 independent school continuously since kindergarten.Masuelli has been actively involved in high school as an officer on the school’s Quiz Bowl and Robotics teams and sings in the choir. Masuelli volunteers off campus through the National Charity Roundtable service organization, recently earning recognition for the most hours served in his chapter. Weinstein has attended Cooper since ninth grade and is actively involved in the Student Diversity Committee. Weinstein is also a leader on the school’s Honor Council, to which she was elected as a junior and senior. She plays tennis year-round, including as a member of Cooper’s tennis team.
Every year, the NHRP recognizes about 5,000 of the 250,000 Hispanic/Latino students who take the PSAT/NMSQT as juniors in order to be identified for the academic recognition.
