Chamber Recognizes 14 High School Seniors for Outstanding ACT Scores

Posted

CARROLL COUNTY — Fourteen high school seniors from Carroll County were recognized by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce for their academic excellence, by scoring a 29 or better on the national ACT test.

“These students are in the top 10 percent in the nation of all the students who took the ACT exam,” said Brad Hurley, Chamber President. “Their academic excellence is exemplary, and the expectations for these young women and men are extremely high.”

Elijah Brewer, Zachary Taylor Childress, Isabella Florrie Colotta, Moriah Jordan Momilani Deloach, Olivia Goostree, Carter Graves, Caley Elaine Harris, Joshua Cameron Kee, Kaitlyn Lane, Laura Millsaps, Braden Pounds, Jenna Paige Tucker, Nathan Lavon Whitsell, and Jackey Qiying Zheng are the eighth group of students selected for the Chamber’s ACT Wall of Honor. The Wall was created in 2013 and a total of 106 students have been recognized by the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce for their academic achievement.

“The Chamber’s board and its membership are proud of these young women and men for striving to attain excellence,” said Hurley. “These students have set high standards for themselves, and we know by keeping their standards high, they will be successful in every endeavor they undertake.”

American College Testing (ACT) is a standardized test for high school achievement and college admission. This 60-year-old test consists of four concentrations: English, mathematics, reading and science reasoning, with an optional writing component.

The main four tests are scored individually on a scale of 1 to 36, and a composite score is provided which is the whole number average of the four scores.

“By recognizing these outstanding students, the Chamber acknowledges the great job our school teachers, administration and staff are doing every day in our schools,” said Brad Hurley. “We know they are positively impacting the lives of our young people.”

In addition to the Chamber ACT Wall of Honor, the Chamber established the STEM Inspire Program to help young people be exposed to STEM.
