147 students at Lockport Township H.S. named Advanced Placement Scholars

Tammy Gallagher, LTHS gifted coordinator, also recognized on Monday

One hundred and forty-seven students at Lockport Township High School were recently named Advanced Placement Scholars.

The Lockport Township High School board of education recognized the students on Monday for their performance on the AP exams. The board also acknowledged Tammy Gallagher, the LTHS gifted coordinator, because nearly 1,000 LTHS students earned college credit due to Gallagher’s “creativity and her steadfast support of AP teachers and students,” according to a news release from LTHS.

In the release, Gallagher explained the importance of the College Board’s AP Scholar designations.

“They demonstrate a student’s commitment to a rigorous curriculum over their entire high school career,” Gallagher said in the release. “The designations are about perseverance. To excel in four, five, or six Advanced Placement courses over four years of high school illustrates that students are not only focused on accruing a little college credit but also learning deeply about subjects across many disciplines throughout their time at LTHS.”
