Mary Yarbrough and Anna Trinh Nguyen are the latest ICCS seniors to be added to The Commercial Appeal's list of Academic All-Stars, in the respective categories of science and art. Their awards bring to eight the number of ICCS seniors who have been named All-Stars during the 2014-15 academic year.
Designed to identify and recognize outstanding high school students
in the Memphis metro area for excellence in academics, leadership and
community service, the All-Stars program is open to all metro-area
senior high school students. Candidates are nominated by their schools,
and honorees are selected by an objective panel of local college
admissions professionals. Because the pool of nominees is a large one,
it is especially noteworthy for a smaller school to have multiple
students represented in the All-Stars program within one academic year.
