CHS Hosts Annual Honors Night Program
Honors Night is an annual tradition held at Columbus High School, and serves to recognize students for their various academic achievements. On Monday, May 16th, CHS hosted this year's Honors Night.
Students recognized at Honors Night were either selected by their teacher, received a scholarship, or received an award outside of CHS. Examples of the latter include the Governors Honors Program or Page One.
Some of the scholarships recognized were Omega Psi Phi, Questbridge, Bradley-Turner, National Merit, and Morton A. Harris.
Alpha Scholars--seniors who have made all A's all four years of high school--were also honored Monday.
Students also received recognition for their performance on AP exams.
AP Scholar with Honor was granted to students who have received “an average score of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams,” according to the College Board Website.
AP Scholar with Distinction was granted to students who have received “an average score of at least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken, and scores of 3 or higher on five or more of these exams.”
Additionally, the Valedictorian and Salutatorian, Jake Wang and Isaac Cheon, respectively, for the class of 2022 were announced.
Other awards included the Carson Scholar Award, Columbus Exchange Student of the Month, DAR Good Citizenship Award, Georgia Tech Stamps Scholars Program, and The Randy Jordan Spirit of Columbus Award.
"Many of the recognitions, especially for underclassmen, look nice on a resume or college application and could be put on college applications to help show academic achievement," says Mr. Broda, who has organized the event for several years.
