TALBOT COUNTY, Md.- Talbot County Public Schools recognized students who have achieved the status of "advanced placement scholar," through their performance on exams. 

The board of education said the list consists of high school students in classes of 2019 and 2020. They were scored on a five point scale when taking their AP exams, with scores of three or higher indicating a student to be considered for college credit. This allows them to be considered capable of being successful in college introductory courses in the area they tested in.

There are four levels of AP Scholar, with definitions as follows:

  • National AP Scholar – Score of 4 or higher on all exams; completed at least 8 exams
  • AP Scholar with Distinction – Average of 3.5 or higher; 3 or higher on 5 or more exams
  • AP Scholar with Honor – Average of 3.25 or higher; 3 or higher on 4 or more Exams
  • AP Scholar – Score of 3 or higher on 3 or more exams

The following students are Talbot County Public Schools’ Advanced Placement Scholars for the Class of 2020:

  • AP Scholar with Distinction: James Parkinson, Dillon Prochnicki
  • AP Scholar with Honor: Ryan Batley, Stephan Luethy, Kyla Mullaney, Rex Nagel,
    Joshua Newmier
  • AP Scholar: Madeline Book, William Denny, Abigale Detrich, Michelle Duah, Gardner Edgell, Anna Ewing, Didier Exantus, Georgia Foster, Henry Hills, Taylor Jackson, Kelly Kane, Katherine Kilbourn, Thatcher Knox, Isabella Kuchnio, Willie Lowry, Jacob McDaniel, Sara Park, Zachary Paugh, Emma Poole, Amelia Rank, Sierra Roe, Nolan Sawatsky, John Stinson, Jr. 

“I congratulate all of these outstanding students on this very high level of academic achievement,” said Dr. Kelly Griffith, superintendent of Talbot County Public Schools. “Advanced Placement courses provide our students the opportunity to experience the rigor of college level courses, and many qualify for college credit based on their scores. We are grateful to have been able to expand our Advanced Placement offerings and will continue encourage all students to try AP!”
