January 14, 2022

Two Perpich seniors have been named College Board National Recognition Programs awardees! Bryne Croyle Johnson (Literary Arts 2022) has received the National Indigenous Recognition Award. Elle Hall-Holt (Visual Arts 2022) has received the National Rural and Small Town Recognition Award.

The College Board National Recognition Programs create pathways to college for underrepresented students by awarding them academic honors and connecting them with universities across the country. These academic honors can be included on college and scholarship applications.

Carol Syvertsen, School Counselor, said, “It is so wonderful when excellent students are acknowledged. Both of these young people are exemplary humans who I have loved getting to know since they joined the Perpich community. Their intelligence and diligence are now nationally recognized!”

Croyle Johnson said, “I’m proud of myself for continuing my academic rigor through the pandemic, and I hope that this year’s juniors put in their all.”

The students earned this recognition because of their academic achievements in school and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT®, PSAT™ 10, and/or AP® Exams. “They’ve accomplished these milestones during an immensely demanding period of their high school career. We couldn’t be more delighted to share this great news.” said The College Board.

Croyle Johnson is originally from Wyoming, Minnesota and previously attended North Lakes Academy in Forest Lake. Hall-Holt is originally from Northfield, Minnesota and previously attended Northfield High School.

Congratulations, Bryne and Elle!
