The College Board recognizes several levels of achievement based on the number of year- long courses and exams or their equivalent semester-long courses and exams. Nine Troup County High School students qualified for the AP Scholar Award. To qualify for this award, students must complete three or more AP Examinations, with a grade of 3 or high- er. The 2000 AP Scholars are John Catdwell, Meredith Grizzle, Elizabeth Montgomery, and Jennifer Olson from La.Grange High School, and Michael Carrea, Jonathan Cotton, Nathan Dewitt, Jennifer Lee, and James Spradley from Troup County Comprehensive High School. Three Troup County students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams.
