Six local 7th graders were recently honored by Duke University in its annual Talent Identification Program. Analyzing standardized test scores of 7th graders across the nation, Duke identifies academically gifted students and invites them to take either of the standardized college entrance exams, the SAT or the ACT. These students take the test right along with high school seniors. The scores of the 7th graders are sent both to the parents and to Duke University where they are assessed.
Six local students were recognized on the state level has having stood out from the thousands of other academically gifted students who took the test. These students were recognized in that their test scores were higher than 50% of the college-bound juniors and seniors who took the test as well.
Honorees attending the ceremony from Paris ISD were Shelby Wilson and Codi Clark and from Prairiland ISD were Beth Ann Dougherty and Payden Dorries. Also honored but unable to attend were Dixon Grossnickle and Brendan Henry.
