Sycamore grad wins scholar award

        Freshman Theodore Berry has received a National Scholar Award at Cedarville University, Ohio. These awards are given to first-year students who were finalist or semifinalists in the National Merit and National Achievement competitions and who maintained a 3.2 or higher cumulative high school grade.

        The graduate of Sycamore High School received the GMCaward three times. He is the son of Mary and Ted Berry of Montgomery.

Honorary inductee

               Stephanie Howard, a senior at Cumberland College in Williamsburg, Ky., has been inducted into Psi Chi, the National Psychology Honor Society. She was also recognized as the Psi Chi senior of the evening at the induction ceremony.

        She is the daughter of Pamela and Grover Howard of West Chester Township.

Denison award

               Amy Burgess, a freshman at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, was awarded a university provost award which provides 40 percent tuition and is renewable for four years provided she achieves and maintains a stipulated grade-point average.

        The graduate of the School for Creative and Performing Arts is the daughter of Robin and Chip Burgess of Westwood.

National scholars

               The following students from Seven Hills Upper School qualified as national scholars by scoring an average grade of 4 or higher on all exams taken and grades of 4 or higher on 8 or more college-level AP exams: Karen Goel, Philip Hall, Mindy Hsu, Dan Lin and Eric Steichen.

Philip Hall was also named Ohio's AP State Scholar, an honor awarded to one male and one female in each state with grades of 3 or higher on the greatest number of exams, as well as the highest average grade on all exams taken.

        The College Board recognizes exceptional achievement on the AP exams. Only about 13 percent of the more than 840,000 students who took the examinations were named AP Scholars. The exams, which high school students take in May after completing college-level courses, are graded on a 5-point scale, with 5 being the highest.

        Most of the nation's colleges and universities award credit, advanced placement, or both for grades of 3 or higher.
