Helena He Recognized as Sunshine State Scholar
Posted on 11/07/2018

Congratulations to Helena He, Atlantic High junior, selected as the School District of Palm Beach County 2019 District Scholars for the Sunshine State Scholar Recognition Program. Helena is an IB Junior with a Cumulative GPA of 3.9737 and Weighted GPA of 5.0921! Currently she is ranked number 1 in her class!

She will be honored, together with her parents and school administrator(s) at an upcoming School Board Meeting.  

Each of the District high schools had the opportunity to select one junior, distinguished in both mathematics and science, to represent their school. This selection was based on the academic and extracurricular history of the school scholars, their desire to attend a Florida college or university, and the results of their mathematics and science assessments administered on November 1, 2018.

The District Scholars, together with their parents, will be invited to a state recognition ceremony in late spring of 2019 at a location to be named later. Students will be recognized for their academic achievements and have the opportunity to meet with recruiters from Florida colleges and universities. The goals for this event are to recognize student achievement and to increase the number of students with outstanding mathematics and science credentials who choose to attend Florida colleges and universities.  

Congratulations to Adam Johnson, Helena He and Callie Alexiadis for being selected as the 2019 District Sunshine State Scholars for the School District of Palm Beach County! Congratulations also to Claire Hagan, Patricia Luc and Kian Greene as the 2019 District Alternates.
