NORTH ROBINSON – Colonel Crawford High School senior Nolan McKibben has been honored by the College Board National Rural and Small Town Recognition Program.

McKibben earned this recognition because of his academic achievements and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT.

As a National Rural and Small Town Recognition Program winner, the College Board will help McKibben connect directly to colleges around the country by sharing his achievements.

“Nolan has put in the effort and his future is bright. This recognition will help colleges see the potential and power of his curiosity and his commitment to learning,” said David Coleman, Chief Executive Officer of The College Board.

To be considered for the program, students must:

● Take the PSAT/NMSQT in October of their junior year.

● Achieve the minimum requested PSAT/NMSQT scores (qualifying level may vary by state each year).

● Earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year.

● Attend school in a rural area or small town.

“We are immensely proud of Nolan’s achievements," said Colonel Crawford Superintendent Todd Martin said. "He has already proven himself a leader inside and outside of school with his many activities, like football, basketball, baseball, the Leo Club, 4-H, Young Life, the College Now program, and being active in his church on top of consistently maintaining outstanding grades.

"We are glad to see he is now reaping the rewards of his hard work and diligence.”
