Duke TIP Program Recognizes HSES Student
May 02, 2018
The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) is honoring seventh-grade student, Evan Long for his exceptional ACT score and academic abilities. Evan is invited to attend the Grand Recognition Ceremony at Duke University in North Carolina on May 21.
Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization that supports academically talented students in grades four through twelve. To qualify for the 7th Grade Talent Search, candidates must score above the 95th percentile on grade-level standardized testing and take the ACT or SAT, an above-grade-level testing designed for college-bound eleventh and twelfth graders.
Evan exceeded ACT scoring standards to join the Grand Recognition Ceremony, the highest Duke TIP honor that only 4 percent of students participating in the 7th Grade Talent Search are able to achieve.
We are extremely proud of Evan for accomplishing this exceptional award and achieving an outstanding ACT score that ranked him nationally in the 93rd percentile for college-bound seniors.
