Milan student named Academic All-Star

“The Indiana Association of School Principals has paid tribute to the best and brightest students in the state,” according to an April 16 Indianapolis Star special section on the 28th annual Indiana Academic All-Stars. The program’s partners are Earlham College, Franklin College, Indiana University, Marian University and Purdue University.

An article explains, “Every accredited school in Indiana can nominate one senior student for consideration. The selection committee then crunches the numbers to evaluate each nominee’s GPA and SAT or ACT test scores. In fact, eight of this year’s honorees achieved a perfect ACT or SAT score and a 4.0 GPA.” The committee also reviewed transcripts.

Each school could submit a letter of recommendation on behalf of the nominated student. After the committee also considered each student’s leadership, community service and extracurricular activities, 90 students representing five different regions were selected.

Of the 90 teens honored at an annual luncheon, 40 were designated as Indiana Academic All-Stars. Another 50 were recognized as Regional Academic All-Stars. Several honored students will receive a scholarship from Indiana University or Purdue University.

Milan High School senior Nathan Hand was one of the 40 All-Stars. The Milan resident is an Eagle Scout who renovated a food pantry for his project, concert band gold medalist and earned Academic All-State status in wrestling. The blood drive and town park cleanup coordinator’s activities include golf, soccer, band, newspaper, yearbook, student council and Rose-Hulman math team.

The son of Eric and Becky Hand plans to attend the U.S. Naval Academy or Purdue University and become a naval aviator. He lists physics and chemistry teacher Jessica Small-Summers as his influential educator.

Area students who were nominated, but not selected, received personal recognition: Deepan Saravanan of Batesville High School, Jacob Knueven of East Central High School, Austin Wagner of Jac-Cen-Del Junior/Senior High School and Trenton Moorhead of South Ripley High School.
