Current, former Northview students named AP Scholars
Three students from Northview High School have earned Advance Placement (AP) Scholar Awards, Devin Ahern, Mary Beth Tribble and Alyssa Driscoll.
AP classes are college-level courses that high school students can take. In order for the coursework to count toward college credit, the students must complete a test in May.
"We (the faculty and staff) are very excited for the students, they have done a tremendous job," Northview High School Principal Tim Rayle told The Brazil Times. "We are extremely grateful for the teachers that put in the extra time to work with the students."
Northview High School senior Devin Ahern, is the son of Carol and Mike Ahern all of Brazil, also attends Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology for a math class.
Ahern has applied to Northwestern, where he plans to study Math and Physics.
"I should be able to skip some classes in math," Ahern said. "The AP classes and tests gave me a good foundation for the studying and writing."
Mary Beth Tribble is the NHS 2008 valedictorian, is majoring in Mechanical Engineering at Notre Dame University, South Bend Ind. Where she is also involved in the Notre Dame Marching Band.
Tribble is the daughter of Jim and Judy Tribble, both of Brazil.
Tribble offered this advice to the current students that are taking the AP test in May.
"Work hard, pay attention in class and listen to the teachers," she said.
Alyssa Driscoll, daughter of John Driscoll and Michele Altman, both of Brazil attends Indiana University, Bloomington Ind. majoring in History
