SETON HILL UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIPS
Seton Hill University presented Maria Campbell and Sarah Melchiore each with The Seton Scholar Award, a full tuition scholarship valued at more than $100,000. Seton Hill designates 10 students to receive scholarships in each respective field of study at the university. Students chosen to receive the award demonstrate outstanding scholarship and talent in their academic and personal achievements. Maria and Sarah are among two of ten students chosen within the incoming freshman class at Seton Hill University to receive this honor.
NATIONAL TECHNICAL HONOR SOCIETY
Two Plum High School students were inducted into the National Technical Honor Society at Forbes Career and Technology Center: Kelton Black, HVAC, and Tyler Osborn, Automotive Technology.
ROTARY ETHICS SYMPOSIUM
Attention high school students: The local Rotary would like to sponsor two students to attend the Rotary Ethics Symposium 2014 entitled "The Ethics of Citizenship" which will be held on Wednesday, May 7th from 8:00am - 2:00pm at the Student Union at Duquesne University. The Ethics Symposium is an annual Rotary District 7300 program administered by the Rotary Club of Pittsburgh and supported by District 7300 Rotary Clubs to provoke discussion of ethical issues important to high school students as they prepare for life in today's society. The workshop will provide the opportunity for high school students to discuss these issues in a small group setting with local experts from across the region. If you are interested in participating in this opportunity or if you would like more information, please see Mr. Betta in the guidance office by March 31, 2014. The one conflict that may cause a student to not be able to attend is if they take AP Calculus AB or BC as that AP exam will be administered on May 7th.

AP DISTRICT HONOR ROLL
It is my pleasure to commend and congratulate our students, staff, and school community on a very prestigious recognition by the College Board. Plum Senior High has earned the status of AP District Honor Roll for the 3rd time in the four years that this award has been in existence. Plum is one of only four other schools in western Pennsylvania to earn this recognition in three or more years. The others schools include Pine Richland, South Park, and Upper St. Clair. In addition, only 477 schools nationally received AP District Honor Roll status. This award serves as recognition for schools who demonstrate an increase in Advanced Placement access and participation by students, while maintaining or improving upon the rate at which students earned a score of "3" or higher on the AP Exams.
Again, congratulations to the students, staff, and school community of Plum Senior High School!!!
