Advanced Placement - 2010
GHS AP Scholars Named
Three graduates of GHS have earned the designation of AP Scholar by the College Board in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement Exams. Only 18 percent of the more than 1,800,000 high school students worldwide who took these exams performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.
The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the number of courses and exams taken. One GHS student, Gregory Toprak, qualified as an AP Scholar, a designation given to those students who receive grades of 3 or higher on three or more AP Exams. Gregory is the son of Anne and Sinan Toprak. He is currently attending Kalamazoo College .
Two students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award, which is granted to students who receive an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken and grades of 3 or higher on four or more AP Exams. They are Colin Hamlin and Chynna Williamson. Colin, son of Beth and Paul Hamlin, is attending Alma College, where he is in the Honors College and also playing basketball. He is pursuing a degree in Business/Communications. Chynna is the daughter of Jon and Dawn Williamson; she is attending the University of Missouri-Columbia, majoring in international studies and business.
