Putnam City Students Named 2017 Oklahoma Academic Scholars

07.19.2017 1:11 PM

Forty Putnam City students have been named Oklahoma Academic Scholars by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.

To achieve recognition as Academic Scholars, students must have a minimum (non-weighted) grade point average of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale accumulated over grades 9, 10, 11 and the first semester of grade 12 or be in the top 10 percent of their class. They must complete the curriculum requirements for a standard high school diploma and achieve either a minimum composite score of 27 on the ACT college-entrance exam or a combined reading and mathematics score of 1,220 on the SAT I.

The Oklahoma Academic Scholar recognition includes a gold seal affixed to the high school diploma, the honor recorded on their official transcript and a certificate of recognition from the State Board of Education.

Although Putnam City is the state’s fifth-largest school district, it has the fourth-highest number of Oklahoma Academic Scholars in the history of the award.
