Anson Middle School is proud to announce that three students have been recognized for their outstanding performance in the 2013 Duke University Talent Identification Program’s Seventh Grade Talent Search.
William “Will” Mark Dagenhart, son of Mark and Wendy Dagenhart of Peachland; Hannah Faye Ross, daughter of Melissa Howard of Ansonville; and Sidnee Reece Williams, daughter of Sammi and Kenneth Williams of Wadesboro, have achieved scores which have qualified them for state recognition through Duke TIP.
Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented students. The Seventh Grade Talent Search identifies bright seventh grade students in middle school. Candidates are invited to take the ACT or the SAT college entrance exams as seventh-graders, which allows them greater insight into their academic abilities. Students who receive state recognition score at or above the national average of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT or the SAT.
North Carolina is one of 16 states in the Duke Tip region. While over 6,000 students in our state participated in the 2013 Talent Search, just over 2,000 students earned scores that qualified them for this recognition. Students who meet the qualifying score criteria receive information on Duke TIP’s renowned summer programs, eStudies, as well as a wide range of educational programs which include Independent Learning, eSeminars and Scholar Weekends.
Will, Hannah and Sidnee, along with their parents, have been invited to attend a special Duke TIP Recognition Ceremony on May 24, at the Halton Arena, located on the campus of the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.
Anson Middle School congratulates these students for their exemplary achievement!
