Two students were recently named AP Scholars for their outstanding performance on the 2017 College Board’s advanced placement exams.

Jasmine Parmley and Tyler Korisko, both of Millard South High School, were among 102 students nationwide to receive this recognition.

Both Nebraska students were chosen for having scores of 3 or higher on the greatest number of AP exams and the highest average scores ― 3.5 or higher on a 5-point scale ― on all exams taken.

The College Board’s AP program provides students the opportunity to take rigorous college-level courses, and earn college credit, while still in high school.

The awards are presented annually to one male student and one female student from each state and the District of Columbia.

In 2017, 4.9 million exams were administered to 2.7 million students at more than 22,000 high schools across the country. Students received 3 or higher on nearly 60 percent of these exams, potentially qualifying them for college credit and/or advanced placement at colleges and universities worldwide.
