Three Dozen Northview Students Named Atmore Rotary Academic All-Stars

May 9, 2008


The Atmore Rotary Club recognized an outstanding group of area high school students as Academic All-Stars Thursday night, including about three dozen Northview High School students.

The Academic All-Star program is open to students who attend Northview High School, Atmore Christian School, Escambia County High School or Escambia Academy.

To be named an Academic All-Star, a student must have maintained at least a B average in every subject for each grading period of the school year, with at least one A for each grading period.

For those who have maintained this status from the 9th through the 12th grades, they are honored as Four-Year Academic All-Stars. Two Northview High School seniors, Eva Lee Currie and Kristan Diana McCants earned that title. (They are profiled at the end of this article.)
