Five Lakehill seventh graders who elected to take the SAT or ACT as part of the Duke University Seventh Grade Talent Search recently received State Recognition, with one student qualifying for Grand Recognition.
Fifty-six percent of Lakehill's test takers qualified for special recognition. Lakehill congratulates Christian Barefoot, Asher Chamoy, Keegan Clendenin,Matthew McCall, and Sarah Smith for their outstanding achievements. All five students received state recognition. Additionally, Clendenin received Grand Recognition, the highest honor in the program.
The Duke University Seventh Grade Talent Search identifies academically talented seventh graders based on their standardized test scores. Candidates are then invited to complete either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examination. The goal is to provide them with information about their abilities while introducing them to a network of services and enrichment programs.
These five Lakehill students will be honored on May 7 at a Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP) State Recognition Ceremony at the University of North Texas. They have also been invited to participate in a Duke TIP Summer Program. Clendenin has also been invited to a Grand Recognition ceremony on May 16 at the Duke University campus.
