MHS Grads Named State AP Scholars
State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor offered her congratulations to Wisconsin's 2019 State Advanced Placement (AP) Scholars, Suhaas Bhat and Nikita Gonugunta. Both students are 2019 graduates of Marshfield High School. They are the 17th & 18th MHS students to earn the title of state scholar.
"Our State AP Scholars are two students who graduated well prepared for college and career," Stanford Taylor said. "Academic rigor, such as in the AP Program, along with necessary supports, is what we want for all students." The College Board grants the State AP Scholar Award annually to the top male and female students in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia for their performance on AP exams. Students are chosen for the award for earning scores of three or higher on the greatest number of AP exams and then the highest average score (at least 3.5) on all AP exams they have taken. Bhat now attends Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. Gonugunta attends the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The AP Program offers students the opportunity to take college-level courses while in high school and to take end-of-course exams, in 38 subject areas, to demonstrate their mastery of the subject. Students earning a score of three, four, or five on AP exams generally receive college credit, advanced standing, or both at many colleges and universities worldwide.

2020 National Merit Commended Student Named
MHS Principal, Michael J. Nicksic, announced today that Riya Bolander has been named a Commended student in the 2020 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior.
About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2020 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Commended Students placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2020 competition by taking the 2018 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®).
''Those being named Commended Students have demonstrated outstanding potential for academic success," commented a spokesperson for NMSC. ''These students represent a valuable national resource; recognizing their accomplishments, as well as the key role their schools play in their academic development, is vital to the advancement of educational excellence in our nation. We hope that this recognition will help broaden their educational opportunities and encourage them as they continue their pursuit of academic success."
Six Marshfield High School seniors attended the Badger Boys or Badger Girls State Leadership Program this past summer. Pictured from left to right are Ariel Fernandez, daughter of Edward and Yvette Fernandez, Tyler Katzenberger, son of Scott Katzenberger and Jodi Johnson, Cole Hanson, son of Brian and Theresa Hanson, Jared Cordova, son of John and Roxanne Cordova, Drake White-Bergey, son of Leah & Taylor Johnson and Troy White-Bergey, and Eben Lonsdale, son of Jacob and Lisa Lonsdale.
Both Badger State programs offer young men and women training and experience in all aspects of government and responsible citizenship as practiced in a democratic society. Both programs included nearly one thousand participants from high schools all over the state of Wisconsin. During the program, participants were grouped into cities and counties to form a 51st state. For the duration of the week, the citizens of this new state carried out all the main functions of state government, using procedures of the State of Wisconsin as their guide. They also had the opportunity to develop a party platform for their national party, similar to our modern version of the democrat and republican party. In addition, a variety of qualified speakers lectured on various topics, including leadership, motivation, and civic responsibility. This year’s speakers were Governor Tony Evers, Senator Tammy Baldwin, Ann Walsh Bradley, Associate Justice of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and Charles Wiley of the Press Corps, among others.
Badger Girls State is sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary and was held at UW-Oshkosh in Oshkosh, WI .
Badger Boys State is sponsored by the American Legion Post 54 and was held at Ripon College in Ripon, WI.
