“The AP Program recognizes high school students who have demonstrated outstanding college-level achievement through AP courses and exams with the AP Scholar Awards,” according to the College Board website. “Although there is no monetary award, each award-winning student receives a certificate, and the award is acknowledged on any AP score report that is sent to colleges after the award has been conferred.” 

Recognized each fall, the College Board celebrates several levels of achievement based on how a student performs on multiple AP Exams.

One Gordon County Schools student 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. This outstanding student is:
