Whiz Kid: Angela DePompeis

Hendrick Hudson High School's DePompeis was named to the National Hispanic Recognition Program.

Grade: Senior

Accomplishment: Angela was named to the Nationa National Hispanic Recognition Program for the 2011-2012 school year.

Key to Awesomeness: “Angela is an exceptional student and extremely deserving of this prestigious honor,” remarked High School Principal James Mackin.

Angela’s course schedule reflects that of a student intent on succeeding and getting the most from her time at Hendrick Hudson High School.  From classes in AP Calculus and Statistics to AP Psychology, Angela is constantly seeking opportunities to expand and enrich her mind.

In addition to her rigorous class schedule, Angela finds time to give back to her school and community through membership in the Math, Hispanic and National Honor Societies. 

After graduation, Angela hopes to pursue a Business degree at Babson College in Massachusetts with a goal of one day owning and operating her own pastry shop and restaurant.

“My mom has been the driving force behind my success,” remarked DePompeis. “She has inspired me to achieve all that I have and will in life and I am forever grateful.”

According to the College Board website, The National Hispanic Recognition Program (NHRP) identifies nearly 5,000 outstanding Hispanic/Latino students each year.  Although the NHRP does not provide a financial reward, being named is an important academic recognition.  The program sends a list of all recognized students to subscribing colleges and universities that are particularly interested in academically outstanding seniors of Hispanic/Latino heritage.

The above was provided by the Hendrick Hudson School District.
