Congratulations to Pace Mittelstaedt for being selected by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence as a member of the 2020 class of Oklahoma Academic All-Staters! Pace was one of only 100 outstanding public high school seniors to be selected from nearly 500 nominations statewide and will be honored in May at our Academic Awards Banquet.
The selection of Academic All-Staters is Oklahoma’s most rigorous academic competition. The 2020 Academic All-State class is the 34th to be selected by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence. 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. Three high schools celebrate their first Academic All-Stater: Hooker High School, Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy and Silo High School.
The year’s All-Staters scored an average of 33.9 on the ACT, with 15 recipients scoring a perfect 36. The students’ average GPA was 4.20. In addition, 40 of this year’s All-Staters are National Merit semifinalists, and two are National Hispanic Scholar semifinalists. Each of this year’s All-Staters will receive a $1,000 merit-based scholarship and a medallion.
