Several former and current C. E. King High School students were recognized for scoring a "3" or higher on their Advanced Placement exams this morning in a special Advanced Placement Rally in the KHS Auditorium.
Most colleges and universities in Texas will award high school students a full three-hour credit if they score at least a "3" on their AP course exam. However, the goal for each student is to obtain a "5," which is the highest mark awarded.
Sheldon ISD Director of Advanced Academics Karen Gallow said students who earn a "3" or better qualify for an academic letter jacket or will receive an AP patch for their accomplishments.
Students in grades 9-11 who earned certificates this morning included (in no particular order) Marie Fansi, Edras Alvarado, Karen Archaga, Madelyne Arevalo, Paula Avalos, Alexandra Castillo, Yvonne Chavarria, Roberto Cias, Madisyn Comstock, Joseline Cortez, Lauryn Crowder, Ricky Cruz, Casandra Cuellar, Justin Edwards, Marian Flores, Elisandra Garcia, Mary Garcia, Daniela Gonzalez, Iris Hernandez, Nancy Hernandez, Pedro Hernandez, Adriana Hurtado, Alejandra Jaramillo, Marilyn Lopez, Michelle Loredo, Mary Luna, Candace Martinez, Vivian Navarro, Andrea Obispo, Lisset Oropeza, John Padilla, Claudia Rivas, Ela Rodriguez, Jazmin Rodriguez, Omar Saenz-Beltran-D, Tania Salas, Sergio Torres, Amy Trevino, Gemaris Velazquez, Valeria Vizcaya, and Abigail Zuniga.
Also, vertical banners were made that included all of the students' names who earned certificates. These banners will hang in the KHS hallway for all to see.
Although a qualifying score of "3" or higher on most exams earns credit for one college class, a qualifying score of "3" or higher on the AP Spanish Language exam earns four classes at most colleges and universities.
