West Roxbury resident Kevin Donnelly and Roslindale resident Emmit Tkach have been awarded special recognition by the College Board’s AP Program as Advanced Placement Scholars. Both students attended the Catholic Memorial School.
Donnelly, a freshman at Providence College, is one of several CM students who scored at least an average of 3 (out of a possible 5) points on three or more Advanced Placement exams taken in the Spring of 2012. Tkach, a freshman at Boston College, was named an AP Scholar with Honor. That means he scored at least an average of 3.25 (out of a possible 5) points on three or more exams, according to a CM press release.
“This is a great accomplishment for our students and for our faculty, who work so hard with our Advanced Placement students to maximize their potential,” said Catholic Memorial Guidance Department Director Bob Tegan via press release.
Catholic Memorial School currently offers AP courses in 17 subjects for students.
