51 Voorheesville students win AP Scholar Awards

VOORHEESVILLE — Fifty-one students at Clayton A. Bouton High School have earned AP Scholar Awards in recognition of their exceptional achievement on AP Exams.

The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program allows high school students to take college-level courses, and to earn college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams.

About 22 percent of the 2.2 million students worldwide who took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently high level to also earn an AP Scholar Award. 

The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on students’ performance on AP Exams. At Clayton A. Bouton High School:

Buyantuyev,  Brandon M. DeLorenzo, Meghan M. Hebert, Alyssa D. Horn, Liam G. Hotaling, Hannah M. Lewis, Emily S. Monaghan, Maeve M. Owens, Trevor E. Relyea, and Edie B. Schaffer; and

Jones, Madeline F. Pelletier, Megan T. Romansky, Sophia Y. Stampalia, Michael R. Strauss, Isabella B. Tabakian, Margaret R. Thayer, Mason J. Wight

Of this year’s award recipients at Clayton A. Bouton, 14 were juniors last year: Semyon A. Buyantuyev, Maeve K. Connolly, Brandon M. DeLorenzo, Meghan M. Hebert, Alyssa D. Horn, Liam G. Hotaling, Hannah M. Lewis, Maeve M. Owens, Megan T. Romansky, Peter A. Ruhren, Edie B. Schaffer, Isabella B. Tabakian, Shaun T. Turnbull, and Mason J. Wight.
