Clare Scott, a sophomore from Deerfield, was among the 37 Ohio Connections Academy students recognized for their outstanding academic achievement and service to the community.
During a ceremony at the McConnell Arts Center in Worthington, Scott was among 19 OCA students in grades 10 through 12 inducted into the National Honor Society.
To qualify these students must have been enrolled with OCA for at least one semester, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.4 or better, demonstrate a history of leadership experience and participate in school or community service activities, and submit letters of recommendation from current and former teachers as well as from other adults.
This year, the National Honor Society students at OCA participated in their own individual service projects as well as group projects, which included planning the Spring Formal, assisting ninth and 10th grade students in their schoolwork through Peer Tutoring, and creating a presentation with career preparation tools by regional location.
Ohio Connections Academy is a tuition-free, fully-online virtual public school that students in grades kindergarten through 12 attend from home. More information about Ohio Connections Academy is available at www.OhioConnectionsAcademy.com.
