Special Awards

Sara Ahmed was named as a commended scholar in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program for her exceptional academic promise demonstrated by her outstanding performance on the PSAT. Of the 1.5 million students who took the PSAT in 2019, Sara scored in the top 50,000.

Students who take AP courses must take national AP exams each spring to see if they will receive college credit for these courses. Test grades are 1,2,3,4, or 5 with 5 being the top score. I would like to recognize 4 seniors who were named AP Scholar with Honor by receiving a score of 3 or more on 4 exams with an overall average of 3.25. They are Sara Ahmed, Amz Hoffner, Cabell Metts, and Will Powell. One senior has been named an AP Scholar with Distinction by earning a 3 or more on 5 AP exams with a 3.5 overall average. Frankie Peele please stand.

Sara Ahmed and Cabell Metts have been nominated by the faculty to apply for the prestigious Morehead Cain Scholarship at UNC.

The Morehead Cain scholarship criteria includes students who excel in leadership, scholarship, character and physical vigor. If selected, Sara and Cabell could earn a full scholarship to UNC Chapel Hill, Discovery Funds to start their own business or travel abroad, and they would get the chance to participate in school and summer enrichment programs to continue to build their leadership and academic skills.

Cabell and Will Powell have been nominated for the Park Scholarship at North Carolina State University. The Park Scholarship criteria includes students who excel in scholarship, leadership, service and character. If selected Cabell and Will could earn a full scholarship to NC State. Park scholars get the chance to develop their skills in a first-year seminar, and during their four years, they assume challenging roles in campus community organizations. As public servants, they engage in service activities each semester, whether by volunteering at a local agency or by identifying a societal need and planning an original project to address it.

 

Finally, the nominees for Governor’s School are Alex Johnson in a chosen academic subject and Monica Mann for theater. Governor's School is a highly selective summer program for high school juniors. Students who are selected for this program get the chance to spend several weeks on a college campus where they take college-level courses in their chosen area of study. In order to be eligible for nomination, students must have scored in the 92nd percentile or higher on a standardized test like the SAT, and excel in their academics, character, and leadership skills.

We wish all of these fabulous young people good luck as they work through the rigorous application process!
