At the December assembly, a record-breaking 59 Lusher Scholars were recognized for their accomplishments. This is compared to 35 Scholars from the Class of 2018, 34 from the 2017 senior crop, and 47 from the class of 2016.
Beginning in eighth grade, potential scholars start taking AP courses in multiple disciplines, are engaged in Certificates of Artistry, PLTW, or BioMed programs, and often take Tulane concurrent courses while maintaining high cumulative GPAs.
Students are nominated in the fall of their senior year and reviewed by a selection committee before receiving the distinction. Lusher Scholar is Lusher's highest academic honor.
"The Lusher Scholar distinction reflects those who have taken advantage of the highest academic opportunities this school offers," College Counselor Mr. Wagner said.
"We're incredibly proud of this group of Lusher scholars," Dr. Corbett said. "They've gone above and beyond in their course work and have shown character and maturity all around to earn this distinction."
