  • AHS Students Recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation

    National Merit

    Avon High School Principal Matt Shockley announced that a total of 16 students were recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC). Six students – Alexandria Adkins, Megan Hammond, Nathan Heim, Geoffrey Henderson, Austin Mock and Zachary Monroe – are among 16,000 Semifinalists in the 62nd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors will continue in the competition for 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring.    

    Ten AHS students – Andrew Benner, Leah Bode, Melanie Hamilton, Nhi Khuu, Madison King, Olivia Lazaro, Nathan Matthews, Rushi Patel, Evan Schafer and Daniel Zinyemba – were among 34,000 students who were named as Commended students. They received a Letter of Commendation for their exceptional academic promise from NMSC. Although these students will not continue in the 2017 competition, these students placed among the top five percent of more than 1.6 million students who entered the 2017 competition by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).

    “We are extremely proud of our students,” said Mr. Shockley. “There were six students who were named as Semifinalists last year, so this year’s number ties for the most in our school history. Also, the ten Commended students are the most in AHS’s history.”

    NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 420 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence. For more information, visit http://www.nationalmerit.org.

  • Governor Pence Appoints Dr. Maryanne McMahon to the State Board of Education

    Governor Mike Pence today appointed Maryanne McMahon to the State Board of Education, effective immediately. McMahon will fill the vacancy created by the departure of Sarah O’Brien. McMahon will serve the remainder of O’Brien’s four-year term, which expires on June 30, 2019.

    “Throughout her career as an educator, Maryanne McMahon has distinguished herself as an innovative leader who works hard advancing the best interests of students, families and teachers,” said Governor Pence. “In her new role with the State Board of Education, I know she will continue her pattern of public service for the good of all Hoosiers.”

    For 17 years, McMahon has worked for the Avon Community School Corporation in Hendricks County in various administrative posts. Most recently, she has served as assistant superintendent – a role in which she secured math and science partnership grants with Purdue University worth more than $500,000, helped lead an efficiency task force that saved the district $350,000 and spearheaded efforts to give greater voice to parents through the Avon Parent Partnership Committee. Previously, McMahon worked for Decatur Township Schools in Marion County as a classroom teacher, assistant principal and consultant for staff development in the areas of curriculum and instruction. McMahon earned undergraduate, education specialist and doctoral degrees from Indiana State University. She also holds a master’s degree from Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and an administrative certification from Butler University.

    ACSC Partners with Andy Mohr Automotive Group

    Avon Community School Corporation and Andy Mohr Automotive Group announced its new partnership. The 10-year agreement, approved by the Avon School Board of Trustees, names Andy Mohr Automotive (AMAG) as Avon Community School Corporation’s (ACSC) exclusive automotive partner.

    As ACSC’s partner, the outdoor athletic complex at Avon High School will be renamed as the Andy Mohr Athletic Complex. The high school’s gymnasium, aquatics center and fieldhouse will also be renamed. ACSC’s Teacher of the Year program will now be sponsored by the automotive group. In addition, Andy Mohr Automotive will donate vehicles to be used for future fundraisers and a special employee purchase program will be implemented.

    “Avon is an important community to us.  We have hundreds of employees and thousands of customers in Avon,” stated Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Mohr. “We believe that this long-term partnership with Avon Community School Corporation will enhance the lives not only of the students and faculty at Avon, but the entire community, our customers and our future customers.”

    “We are especially grateful for Mr. Mohr’s support of our students and staff,” said ACSC Superintendent Dr. Margaret Hoernemann. “This partnership will enhance what ACSC is able to accomplish in the classroom, on the field and in extracurricular activities.”

    The 10-year commitment includes the following details:

    • Donation of six (6) vehicles over term of agreement for fund-raising raffles
    • A $5,000 teacher grant each year of the agreement
    • Vehicle discount program for ACSC employees
    • Naming rights to the AHS athletic complex and its facilities

    Proceeds from the vehicle raffle sales are expected to push the total value of the partnership in excess of $1 million.

    Andy Mohr Automotive operates 12 franchise automotive dealerships, one heavy-duty truck center and four collision centers in the central Indiana area.  Andrew Mohr was inducted into the Junior Achievement Central Indiana Business Hall of Fame in 2015 and was the 2014 United Way of Central Indiana Campaign Chair, where he led record-setting campaign funding in Hendricks County. Andy Mohr Automotive has helped local non-profit organizations generate more than $1 million in additional funds via car raffles in recent years.
