Allen said college admissions counselors like to see AP courses on transcripts because it proves the student has taken a rigorous course load. Also, she said, if students score high enough on the test they get college credit for the course. Mapes said she enjoys the challenging nature of the class and is proud that the students are responsible for their own learning, She has enjoyed learning about British authors, she told the News in Tuesday, and is especially looking forward to learning more about Shakespeare.

During the business portion of the meeting, the board elected Jason Rogers as its president for 2013. Roger Clark will serve as vice president and Knox County Career Center observer and the legislative liaison is Colby Clippinger.
