AHS Students Earn National Recognition for Academic Excellence

Twelve Avon High School students were selected as College Board African American and Hispanic Recognition Program Awardees!

Students included in the organization's African American Recognition Program are Daniel Alonge, Aderinsola Adeleke, Faith Kipkulei, Emmanuel Gichaba, Hiqmah Mustapha, Anthony Frazier, Lauren Fitch, Mya Doyle (not pictured), Jaelyn Truitt, and Tyler Body. Hispanic Recognition Program students are Anthony Lee and Sonia Aleman Villegas.

"We're thrilled that our students have earned this recognition," says Avon High School Principal Matt Shockley. "We are so proud of them for their achievements in their classrooms, and I am happy they'll get to take advantage of programs designed to help students from underrepresented backgrounds stand out to colleges during the admissions process."

These incredible students earned this recognition because of their exceptional academic achievements and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT® and/or AP® Exam. This is proof of their hard work and superior performance, which is even more remarkable in the face of a particularly challenging year.

Way to go, students!
