Senior Spring Zhou was recently recognized for being selected for the 2022 Missouri Scholars 100, a statewide program that honors 100 of Missouri’s top academic students in the graduating class of 2022. Spring was honored at a luncheon in Columbia, MO. on Sunday, May 1.
According to the announcement of her achievement, selection [for the 2021 Missouri Scholars 100] is based primarily on a formula using the student’s grade point average and ACT or SAT score. Each student nominated had to first meet the criteria of an “Academic Decathlon”, which included 10 events designed to assure the academic strength of the student.
Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.750, a minimum ACT score of 29 or a minimum SAT score of 1,600. The student must also be ranked in the upper 10% of the class and have taken high-level courses in Mathematics, Science, English, and Foreign Language. Also required is excellent attendance, being an exemplary school citizen, and being involved in the school activity program.
In addition to her numerous honors and advanced courses, Spring is a member of Ursuline’s National Honor Society, currently serving as President, as well as being a member of the Spanish Honors Society. This year, she also served as a House Captain for Coraggio House, played Varsity Tennis, led the Chinese and Asian Culture Club, participated in UA’s Mock Trial team, and worked crew for the Spring Production. Spring brings enthusiasm to everything she is involved in, and is a great representation of what it means to be an Ursuline woman.
We are so proud of Spring for her accomplishments, her hard work, and her love of learning, and cannot wait to see what lies ahead in her future.
