MISD students recognized with BigFuture honor from College Board

MIDLAND Midland ISD has announced that 27 students have achieved academic honors from the BigFuture recognition program through the College Board. These programs shine a light on the dedication and academic accomplishments of high school students, and provide a platform to showcase their excellence to colleges and scholarship providers.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate our students and acknowledge their achievements,” said Judy Bridges, MISD Director of Advanced Academics. “Our students possess a wealth of unique qualities, and receiving this honor reinforces their potential.”

To qualify, students must have:

  • A minimum GPA of 3.5 or higher.
  • PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10 assessment scores ranking within the top 10% in the state or earning a score of 3 or higher on at least two AP exams during 9th and 10th grades.
  • Attendance in a school in a rural area or small town or self-identification as African American/Black, Hispanic American/Latino, or Indigenous/Native.

Eligible students are encouraged to apply through BigFuture during their sophomore or junior years, with awards being granted at the beginning of the following school year. The recognition allows them to highlight their achievements while planning for college. Colleges and organizations using the College Board’s Student Search Service have access to these recipients for their recruitment process.
