By Sharon Warner

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program (AP) 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 millionstudents 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. Students from Shelby County Public Schools who received recognition are seniors, unless otherwise noted.

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 or higher on five or more of these exams. At Martha Layne Collins High School: Matthew Folsom (junior) and Elizabeth Sames. At Shelby County High School: Clayton Brown, Ivana Eiler, Seth England and Brittney Mahan.

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 or higher on four or more of these exams. At Martha Layne Collins High School: Tanner Smith and Joshua Whittle (junior). At Shelby County High School: Patrick Casper and Brooke Whitaker.

Students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher. AP Scholars at Martha Layne Collins High School:  Maya Lemaster (junior), Erica Ribenboim (junior), Kendyl Siebart, Lindsay Tripp, and Aaron Wiggen. AP Scholars at Shelby County High School: Alyssa Anderson, Angel Belew, Micah Broughton, Greylyn Burk, Christen Campbell, Kristian Campbell, Dustin Casey, Patty Dempsey, Evan Devers, Emil Hochstrasser (junior), Akia Jones, Matthew Lancaster (junior), Abigail Lewis, Elizabeth Lowden, Michaela Manley, Katelyn McNew, Jordan Morris, Amanda Munsterman, Kayla Nash, John Ruble, Kristen Sexton, Shaina Sturgeon, Machala Wells.
