Seven BSHS classmates score in elite level on national AP exams

September 21, 2011

For most educators, AP stands for Advanced Placement, college prep courses offered through many Texas high schools.

To Mike Ritchey, however, the letters stand for “Absolutely Perfect.”

Ritchey, the principal at Big Spring High School, was using those words to describe the test results of seven BSHS students in the latest round of national AP exams conducted earlier this year.

Those students — Andrew Fillingim, Blake Brorman, Lucas Ontiveros, Jackson Watkins, Connor Furqueron, Shermila Kher and Lacy McMurtrey — all scored in the elite level on the national tests, which were administered during the 2010-20-11 school year. The results were only recently announced.

Congrats to those hard working kids, and supporting parents! Enough can't be said about people or kids who are determined to succeed despite of the obstacles! Mike Ritchey can gloat all he wants, but BSISD needs to get their act together and raise the standards of education and not worry so much about where its extra-curricular activities stand in the district. By investing in education all the kids from BSISD would benefit and more would have a decent chance to reach this high of an accomplishment. But as long as the focus and investments are on the sports, BSISD will continue to receive poor ratings for its schools!
