FSD1 seventh grade students honored for high SAT scores

Fifteen Florence One seventh grade students have been identified as academically talented through the Duke University 7th Grade Talent Search Program. The program identifies academically talented seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exam as seventh graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities.

Participants also gain valuable benefits and have access to unique resources for gifted students. Honorees include: from Sneed Middle School, honorees are: Luke Barefoot, Kaitlyn Cimney, Sean Floyd, John Garey, James Garey, Jeffrey Jiang, Janiya Plowden, and Caedyn Porzio. From Williams Middle School, honorees are: Parker Denton, Emma Emery, Daniel Hilbourn, Elizabeth King, Alice Lee, Simran Singh, and Annie Watson. Each year Duke TIP hosts a grand ceremony at Duke University to honor the 7th Grade Talent Search participants who meet the grand level qualifying score criteria.

This year, Annie Watson of Williams Middle School has been identified as a Grand Talent Winner. The Seventh Grade Talent Search identifies academically qualified students and invites them to complete college entrance examinations (SAT or ACT) alongside high-school students. Students are formally recognized for their test scores, provided with detailed information about their abilities, and introduced to an available network of academic opportunities and resources.
