Students Win All-State Awards



Five Tulsa Public Schools students have been awarded 2017 Academic All-State Awards from the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence: Rachel Ijams, Yash Kumar, and Pierce Pettit from Booker T. Washington High School; Y Quan from Edison High School; and Edward McCabe from Memorial High School.

The 100 winning students are top public high school seniors and were selected from 551 nominations statewide.

Each of this year’s All-Staters will receive a $1,000 merit-based scholarship and a medallion. The All-Staters will be recognized at the foundation’s 31st annual Academic Awards Banquet on May 20, at the Renaissance Tulsa Convention Center.
Since the award program’s inception in 1987, some 3,100 high school seniors from 320 school districts have been named All-State scholars.

To be nominated for Academic All-State, students must meet one of the following criteria: an American College Test (ACT) composite score of at least 30; a combined SAT evidence-based reading & writing and math score of at least 1340; or be selected as a semi-finalist for a National Merit, National Achievement or National Hispanic Scholarship.

This year’s All-Staters scored an average of 33.6 on the ACT, with 9 recipients scoring a perfect 36. In addition, 39 of this year’s All-Staters are National Merit semifinalists, while three are National Hispanic Scholars.

Academic All-Staters are nominated by their principals or superintendents and are selected on the basis of academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community involvement, as well as an essay submitted by each nominee.
