At the August School Board meeting, several 2014 graduates were mentioned for the extraordinary achievement of being named AP Scholars by The College Board. These students have demonstrated college-level achievement in their Advanced Placement courses and exams.

Because of the timing of the release of the AP Scholars list, most students named AP Scholar had already left for school and were unable to attend the Board meeting to receive their recognition from the Board. To be named an AP Scholar, students must receive a three or higher on three or more Advanced Placement Exams. These students are Jace Bagwell, Katherine Burns, Elizabeth Irwin, Taylor Landry, Diane Maldonado, and Savanna Smith.

Students who receive an average score of 3.25 on all Advanced Placement Exams taken, and scores of three or higher on four or more of these exams are named AP Scholar with Honor. These students are Michael Chen, Lawson Cox, Chelsea McLain, and Scott Sawyer.

Also at the Board meeting, David Jones, immediate past President of the Board of Trustees received a plaque for his service and leadership to the Board. Assistant Superintendent, Greg Perry, thanked him for his commitment, dedication and hard work required in serving, not only on the Board, but in the office of president.
