Rotary Academic All-Stars Named From Northview, ECHS, Escambia Academy, Atmore Christian

May 19, 2021

The Atmore Rotary Club has named 160 area high school students as Academic All-Stars.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the in-person ceremony could not be held this year, and students were mailed a recognition packet.

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.

The Rotary Club is presenting over $25,000 in scholarships this year to 37 Seniors. Each four-year Senior Academic All Star will receive a scholarship for $1,000. The seniors who have been an Academic All Star for three years will receive $700, two year seniors will receive $600, and one-year seniors will receive $500. The program excludes Northview students that are full-time dual enrolled.

Those honored as Atmore Rotary Club Academic All Stars were:

    @Parent – thank you for pointing that out. Obviously I was not aware dual enrollment students were left out. That saddens me even more than my original perception of the situation. The schools and/or Rotary need to fix this problem

    Congratulations to those who have worked so hard this year and, for those few, all four years of high school.

    As a graduate of ECHS, it saddens me to see that only five seniors made it. I guess that means the competition and standards for the top ten are MUCH lower than they were when I roamed those halls. Apparently half of the top ten aren’t even A-B students. I was number 21 out of 172 students; if I was there today, I bet I’d be in the top 10.

    Once a Blue Devil, always a Blue Devil. Class if 1991.

    I applaud all these students for their hard work. I am a little disappointed that dual enrollment students are being excluded. I am a proud parent of one of these excluded students. Because the DUAL enrollment students are taking college classes already and have to work twice as hard to keep their eligibility in place for this program. So to not included them is a slap in their faces by the rotary club to acknowledge there accomplishment. So here is a shout-out to all the successful DUAL ENROLLMENT STUDENTS. Great job you will be rewarded with great careers for your hard work.

    Way to go Maggie
