Savannah Hernandez Excels on AP Exams

Three 5's on Advanced Placement

Savannah Hernandez, a senior currently attending Independence High School (IHS), received three 5's on Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

Her hard work and perseverance has helped her to become the only student at IHS to receive three 5s during the 2013-2014 school year.

My parents really pushed me when I was younger to care about education,” said Hernandez. “They told me to put education before everything.”

She plans on attending the University of California, Berkeley to become a neurologist. Hernandez is also a four-year varsity player and captain of IHS’s badminton team.

How does she manage to fit sports into her busy schedule? Hernandez said, “It’s hard...It’s all about time management and using every possible free time.”
