Duke University Recognizes Chisholm Middle School Students
The following Chisholm Middle Schools students will be recognized at Kansas University on May 31, 2015 as part of Duke University's Talent Identification Program (TIP):
Back row, L- R: Fletcher Hummingbird, John Jantzen, Connor Hultman, Quinn Stephens, Mark Mills
Front row, L-R: Josh Kennell, Clara Rowe, Eli Regier
Duke University Talent Identification Program's 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students across the US who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test.  As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level college-entrance exams (ACT or SAT) to learn more about their abilities.
Duke TIP hosts annual recognition ceremonies to honor the seventh graders who score highest on these ACT or SAT exams.  This year eight Chisholm Middle School students have been invited to attend state recognition ceremonies at Kansas University on May 31st.  
One of these students, Mark Mills, has also been invited to attend the Grand Recognition Ceremony at Duke on May 18th. The grand recognition ceremony honors seventh graders who have earned scores equal to or better than 90 percent of college-bound seniors who took the same tests.   
"As seventh graders, these students have achieved scores on the ACT rivaling those of half of college-bound  seniors who took the tests.  We are extremely proud of our honorees, and we appreciate the opportunity to celebrate their achievement and encourage them in their academic potential," says Martha Putallaz, PhD, executive director of Duke TIP and professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke University.
Duke TIP provides resources to these students, their parents, educators, and schools for the development of the students' optimal educational potential.
