National Achievement Semi-finalist Audriana Osborne, a student at Loveless Academic Magnet Program (LAMP) High School in Montgomery, Ala., will be among some of the nation’s top scholars who will join the Florida A&M University (FAMU) student body this fall.
Osborne was presented with FAMU's Distinguished Scholar Award by Assistant Director of Enrollment Management Kenneth Tellis. She will use the full-ride scholarship to study English and pre-law.
“Florida A&M University is in the midst of a strategic and concerted effort to attract the best and brightest students to our growing community of scholars here on campus,” Tellis said. “Audriana has demonstrated academic success throughout her high school career and we look forward to welcoming her to the FAMU family in the fall.”
According to recent U.S. News & World Report data, Osborne comes to FAMU from one of the nation’s top ranked high schools. LAMP is the No. 1 ranked high school in Alabama for 2013 and 2014. The school is also ranked No. 18 in the nation; with an average ACT score of 29, SAT score of 1910 and 100 percent college attendance.
Tellis said LAMP High School is just one example of the caliber of schools that the university has successfully recruited students from for its incoming class of 2018. In addition to LAMP, the newest members of the FAMU community will come from such schools as Florida’s Stanton Prep (No. 2), Dreyfoos School of the Arts (No. 5), Suncoast Community High School (No. 8), as well as Alonzo & Tracy Mourning Senior High School, which U.S. News lists as one of the top-ranked schools in Miami-Dade County.
