Jacob Whittinghill, Clarksville High School

The College Board recognized Jacob Whittinghill from Clarksville High School for receiving a perfect score on an Advanced Placement (AP) exam. Jacob’s AP 2-D Art and Design exam was so superior that it fell into a select category. Jacob received the top score and was only one of 197 students in the world to earn every point possible on the exam, receiving the maximum score on each portion. We applaud Jacob’s hard work and his teacher for helping him excel. Congratulations, Jacob!
