Bailey Goggans, Vance Collard and Lyndsey Schwope were recognized by the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP) for their outstanding performance on ACT and SAT tests taken during their 7th grade year. The Duke University Talent Identification Program is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented youth. As a global leader in gifted and talented education, Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential.
Each year Duke TIP hosts at least one state recognition ceremony in each of the states with the largest Talent Search enrollments (currently AL, AR, FL, GA, IA, KS, KY, LA, MS, MO, NE, NC, OK, SC, TN and TX) to honor students currently in the 7th Grade Talent Search who meet the State level qualifying score criteria. The students were honored recently by Duke TIP in a state ceremony similar to a graduation ceremony with a keynote speaker. The honorees were called on stage to receive their commemorative medal.

ACT English ≥ 21
