Seniors Selected from Nearly 500 Applicants

Two OSSM seniors are finalists in the 2020 Academic All-Stars program selected by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence. These students are Helen Dai and Xinyi (Cindy) Li, both from Stillwater, Okla.

“Being recognized as an Academic All-Stater is one of the highest honors an Oklahoma student can achieve.  Both of these students not only perform exceptionally in the classroom but are also model young citizens outside the classroom as well.” 

This year, the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence received 495 nominations and named 100 of those as finalists. Since the award program’s inception in 1987, some 3,400 high school seniors from 326 school districts have been named Academic All-State scholars. This year’s group come from 75 schools in 69 Oklahoma school districts and averaged 33.9 on the ACT and average GPA of 4.20.
