District 308 High School Students Receive High Honor for Exceptional Test Scores

Sep 25, 2014 07:34PM, Published by Steven Jack, Categories: Education, News




More than 100 Community Unit School District 308 high school students were awarded Scholar Awards in recognition of their high achievement on the advanced placement (AP) exams.
 
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program provides willing and academically prepared students with the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses while still in high school and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on AP exams.
 
Last year’s Oswego High School (OHS) valedictorian Iva Veseli qualified for the national AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 4.0 or higher on a five-point scale on all AP exams taken and scores of 5.0 or higher on eight or more of these exams.
 
Sixteen OHS students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on a five-point scale on all AP exams taken and scores of 3.0 or higher on five or more of these exams. Those students are: Amy Annala, Marissa Ashner, Ben Brawner, Alec Cepeda, Erin Davey, Kajol Doshi, Alexander Feltes, Courtney Gardner, Jessica Johnson, Christian Jones, Lily Messmore, Melinda Pajor, Nakita Patel, Kyle Prentice, Emma Sullivan and Iva Veseli.
 
Seven Oswego East High School (OEHS) students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3.0 or higher on five or more of the exams. These students are Timothy Halbesma, Leena Hwang, Eiman Jamil, Camila Novo-Viano, Steven Sueser, Charles Thornton, and Murtaza Zohair.
 
Fifteen OHS students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3.0 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students are Ailysh Cooper, Scott Eriksen, Alexander Federau, Norah Flaherty, Crystal Flake, Gabriella Gugliotta, Thomas Hartness, Anna Howell, Katherine Matthews, Mikaela Mockenhaupt, Tiana Ninic, Desiree Nygaard, Jose Renteria, Anne Ringlestein, and Brenna Zoephel.
 
Nine OEHS students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and scores of 3.0 or higher on four or more of these exams. These students are Loriz Aguilar, Madeline Alvendia, Nicholas Ebelback, Tyler Engleman, Jenna Heiser, Johnathon Hillard, Sujay Shah, Samual Stovall, and Caroline Westpfahl.
 
Twenty eight OHS students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 3.0 or higher on three or more exams. These students are: MacKenzie Adamski, Heidi Arnold, Meghann Ashman, Brianna Bradley, Sarah Frantik, Cassidy Hartzog, Zachary Hegseth, Addison Keeneth, Nathan Krumholz, Michael Mcguire, Cassandra McLaughlin, Liliana Mendoza, Kara Neitzel, Allison Pales, Nikesh Patel, Blake Patton, Connor Pavlina, Alex Perello, Alexander Pool, Robert Reichert, Nicholas Schultz, Spencer Seeger, Steven Seeger, Megan Skibinski, Margaret Smerz, Tessa Vojtik, Brad Whowell, and Sydney Wieczorek.
 
Twenty six OEHS students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by earning an average score of 3.0 or higher on three or more exams. These students are: Harris Ahmed, Nicole Bertrand, Margaret Byrne, Zaira Corral, Katherine Ewalt, Armani Hrobowski, Stephanie Huerta, Hayley Hughes, Sarah Kovac, Hillary Kuehl, Michael Lang, Efstathia Loukenas, Brandon Love, Jodie Makara, Jessica Mandel, George Manesiotis, Zachary Maroney, Robert Miller, Linda Oglesbee, Anthony Padilla, Trevor Peterson, Krista Poker, Alex Read, Caleb Tucker, Ashlee Williams, and Diondria Woodhouse.
 
Twenty of this year’s OHS recipients are juniors. Seven of this year’s OEHS award winners are juniors. Research has shown that AP students who score a 3.0 or higher on exams typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher college graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP.
