The College Board has honored 88 Cherokee County School District students through its National Recognition Programs awards!

CCSD’s honorees are among the only 62,000 students from across the country being recognized for their academic success.  To be considered for recognition, students must have a GPA of at least 3.5 and either exceptional test scores placing them in the top 10% in their state on the 2021 PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10, or scores of 3 or higher on two of more 2022 Advanced Placement (AP) exams and meet recognition guidelines.  

“Congratulations to these students for earning this national academic recognition,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “This level of success is a result of years of dedication to learning – we are proud of you and grateful to our outstanding teachers.  We wish you all the best as you finish your high school studies and pursue future successes!”

The programs are designed by the College Board to provide recognition opportunities for high school seniors and juniors in underrepresented groups.  Students may apply for the National African American Recognition Award, National Hispanic Recognition Award, National Indigenous Recognition Award and National Rural and Small Town Recognition Award.  Students can earn multiple recognitions, and are listed for each below.
