Duke TIP recognizes local students

DURHAM, NC – Academically-talented seventh graders in Florence One received recognition for their exceptional scores on the ACT or SAT. Duke University Talent Identification Program's 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students across the United States who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test. As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level college-entrance exams (ACT or SAT) to learn more about their abilities. Duke TIP hosted the annual recognition ceremonies to honor the seventh graders who scored highest on these ACT or SAT exams.

This year, of the over 64,896 participants nationally, 21,775 students were invited to attend state recognition ceremonies and 1,894 students have been invited to the grand recognition ceremony. In Florence One, 15 students attended the state recognition ceremonies and one Florence One student, Annie Kate Watson received recognition at the grand recognition ceremony. Florence One honorees include Sneed Middle School’s Luke Barefoot, Kaitlyn Cimney, Sean Floyd, John Garey, James Garey, Jeffrey Jiang, Janiya Plowden, and Caedyn Porzio.

Williams Middle School honorees include Parker Denton, Emma Emery, Daniel Hilbourn, Elizabeth King, Alice Lee, Simran Singh, and Annie Kate 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 Kate Watson of Williams Middle School was identified as a grand talent winner. The ceremony honoring seventh graders who earned scores equal to or better than 90 percent of college-bound seniors who took the same tests was held last month.
