Graves County High School had some 30 students in the spring of 2012 to earn Advanced Placement honors for excelling in rigorous, college-level courses.
“National AP Scholar” is a prestigious honor. Megan Durham earned that accolade. To achieve that status, a student must earn a minimum score of 4 on all AP exams taken and scores of 4 on eight or more of the those exams.
“AP Scholar with Distinction” is granted to those individuals who earn an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of those exams. GCHS students so honored include Megan Durham, C.J. Elliott, Clifton Hendley, Hannah Latta, Preston Simmons, and Sam Williams.
“AP Scholar with Honor” is granted to students who earn an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of those exams. GCHS students holding that honor from this past spring include Katherine Armstrong, Josh Drouin, Jonathan Goatley, Charles Gregory, Shayna Hall, and Kadie Kinnis.
“AP Scholar” is a recognition for earning a score of 3 or higher on 3 or more AP exams. Some 18 GCHS students achieved that level: Jessica Alford, Sara Barrett, Garrett Bell, Rebecca Cope, Andrew Crider, Emily Duff, Tiffani Ellington, Kim Fulcher, Dani Gardner, Ty Hendley, Mary Hummel, Hunter Jones, Logan Magness, Austin McCallon, Miranda Oldham, Shelia Stacy, Clark Travis, and Emily Waggoner.
Besides the recognition and resume entry, honored students also benefit with cash. The 2011-12 AP students who passed their exams should expect to pick up their bonus student checks by Nov. 30.
