Senior Jamie Smith was selected for the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals All-State Academic Excellence Team. Jamie was chosen by the selection committee as one of the top twenty scholars in the state.
This prestigious award was designed to recognize Texas high school seniors for their outstanding academic achievements and the rewards of superior scholarship.
Many outstanding senior students were nominated by their high school principals based on their SAT or ACT scores, academic grade point average, pursuit of advanced diploma, and other evidence of exceptional academic ability. Each student nominated was asked to write a 300-500 word essay to submit with the application. From this group of outstanding young scholars, twenty were chosen for the TASSP All State Academic Excellence Team.
As a member of the TASSP All-State Academic Excellence Team, Jamie will be awarded a $500 scholarship and formally recognized at the TASSP Summer Workshop in Austin, Texas on June 16, 2016.
In addition, senior Dorothy Nugent has been named to the TASSP Teens Serving Texas Team! Dorothy was chosen by the selection committee as one of the top five applicants in the state.
Congratulations, Jamie and Dorothy on your awards!
