AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WJBF) – Aiken County is finding new ways to honor students excelling in advance placement classes.

More than 400 students at South Aiken High School are currently enrolled in Advance Placement classes. On Thursday, they were recognized during a pep rally for their outstanding academic achievements.

Teachers say athletes are cheered for their performance and they feel students should also receive the same recognition for their classwork.

“To be able to come together and have an experience like this is something we’ve never done before,” said Asst. Principle Martha Messick. “We’ve always celebrated our athletics teams in this fashion, but we’ve never really celebrate students for their academic achievements in this way.”

Aiken County Schools Superintendent Dr. Sean Alford has challenge A.P. students to pass their A.P. exams this year.

Any students who score a 3 or higher on any A.P. exams will receive a $100 check.
