The College Boardâ€™s Advanced Placement Program named 24 Marmion Academy students AP Scholars.
This title is given in recognition of their exceptional achievement on the college-level Advanced Placement (AP) Exams. Only 18 percent of the nearly 1.8 million students who took AP Exams in May 2010 performed at a sufficiently high level to merit such recognition.
Local students who achieved Scholar with Honor status were Thomas Cruger and Kevin Filip, both of Sugar Grove; Edward Malnar of LaFox; and Matthew West of Montgomery.
The local student who achieved AP Scholar status was Joseph Burroughs of Elburn.
