Teacher receives educator award
Kenston Middle School teacher Lynn Fagerholm received the Technical Educator Award by the Cleveland Technical Societies Council. The council recognized her for her contributions to the advancement of engineering and technical professions in Northeast Ohio.
“Mrs. Fagerholm’s love of science is evident in all aspects of her life. She brings science concepts to life with hands-on activities in her classroom,” said Pat Brockway, former Kenston Middle School principal.
High school garden gives back
The Kenston High School Giving Garden is bearing vegetables. Students have begun harvesting some of the produce, like sausage tomatoes, that will head to a local food pantry. Earlier this summer, high school students planted a variety of vegetables in raised beds outside the high school’s science wing.
Kenston celebrates AP Scholars
Kenston High School congratulated their students for earning more than 100 AP Scholar designations by the College Board for the 2020 school year in recognition of their achievements in college-level Advanced Placement Program exams.
Twelve students earned designation as National AP Scholars for earning an average score of 4 or higher on all AP exams on a 5-point grading scale with scores of 4 or higher on eight or more of those exams; 56 students earned the AP Scholar with Distinction Award by earning an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP exams taken with scores of 3 or higher on five or more of the exams; 17 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honors Award by earning an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP exams taken with scores of 3 or higher on four or more of the exams; and 50 students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with scores of 3 or higher.
The College Board’s Advanced Placement Program offers students the opportunity to take challenging college-level courses while still in high school. In addition, students can receive college credit, advanced placement or both for successful performance on the AP exams. About 18 percent of the more than 1.6 million high school students took AP exams and performed at a sufficiently high level to merit the recognition of AP Scholar.
