WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools recently announced that Benjamin Beyer was named one of 40 high school seniors from throughout Indiana to be recognized as a 2020 Indiana Academic All-Star, a program of the Indiana Association of School Principals.
Students were selected from a field of 280 nominees. Selection of the school’s nominee is based upon the following considerations: a mathematical formula that combines the SAT or ACT composite score and the seven-semester grade-point average; academic achievements and honors, academic courses and academic extracurricular activities; and other extracurricular activities, community service and leadership qualities. Each public and private high school accredited by the Indiana Department of Education may nominate one senior for consideration as an Indiana Academic All-Star. From these nominees, a selection committee chose the regional winners (representing five regions in Indiana) and the 40 Indiana Academic All-Stars.
Academic All-Star distinction recognizes seniors who excel in the classroom first and foremost, but who also are actively involved in their schools and communities and take on leadership roles in those activities. The program is produced by the IASP, with support provided by DePauw University, Indiana University Bloomington and Purdue University, along with corporate partner Herff Jones.
Benjamin Beyer will receive his award and plaque at a later date.
