APHS honors academic achievements for 2011-12
Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK -- More than 150 Avon Park High School (APHS) students were recognized Sept. 13 for their academic achievements during the 2011-12 school year.
The students received certificates from the U.S. President's Education Awards Program. Those students who scored a level 5 on FCAT reading; level 5 on EOC Algebra 1; top scores in EOC Biology and EOC Geometry; and scoring a 3, 4, or 5 on a College Board Advanced Placement exam in English Composition and/or U.S. History earned a certificate for academic achievement.
Students who had a 3.5 or higher GPA (unweighted) earned a certificate, academic letter and a pin to recognize their educational excellence.
In a letter that accompanied the certificates, President Obama wrote, "By earning this honor, you have shown a commitment to working hard in the classroom and to meeting the highest academic standards. Students like you will chart the course of our country's unwritten history, and I commend you for setting a powerful example for all young Americans."
Principal Tealy Williams shared his encouragement and admiration for these academic leaders and looks forward to another successful year with even more students earning those certificates.
