Duke TIP recognizes five Pinewood students

  • Sunday, May 18, 2014

Twenty-eight Pinewood Prep seventh graders qualified to participate in the 2014 Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP).

Duke TIPís Seventh Grade Talent Search identifies students across the United States who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test. These students are invited to take above-level college-entrance exams (such as the ACT or SAT) to learn more about their abilities.

From the nearly 65,000 students nationwide who qualified, the top one-third of performing students are selected for Duke TIP State Scholar status. This year, five Pinewood seventh graders have earned this status: Colin Baker, Noah Garcia, Sallie Limehouse Jack Rauton and Kirkland Smith.

As seventh graders, they achieved scores on the ACT or SAT rivaling those of half of seniors who took the tests. They have been invited to attend the state recognition ceremony in June.

The following Pinewood seventh graders qualified for this yearís program: Colin Baker, Kai Bishop, Hannah Bulick, Benjamin DeLillo, Ben Diffley, Jack Gadol, Noah Garcia, Lauren Evan Gilmer, Ethan Hirsch, Sarah Hudock-Jeffrey, Sallie Limehouse, Julia Maguire, Abbey Martichenko, Mattison Matthews, Arden McNeill, Gavin McRoy, Lizzie Pelcher, Devin Ramsey, Jack Rauton, Mary Grace Robertson, Connor Ruddy, Lauren Russell, Kirkland Smith, Jared Snell, Ashton Steele, Meaghan Veale, Haley Welch and Lauren Whipple.
