Lakewood AP students honored

HEBRON – Five students from Lakewood High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program(r) (AP(r)) 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 the AP Exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.9 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award.

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams.

ERic Parrish 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 or higher on five or more of these exams. He is currently enrolled in the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

Randy McKnight 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 or higher on four or more of these exams. He is currently enrolled at The Ohio State University.

Chelsea Bargo, Jared Halter and Hannah Olson qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. These Lakewood High School alums are currently enrolled at Auburn University, The Ohio State University and St. Olaf College respectively.
