Jim B. Satterfield Middle School would like to recognize the students who participated in the 2016 Duke University Talent Identification Program’s 7th Grade Talent Search. Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented students. Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential. Now in its thirty-sixth year, the 7th Grade Talent Search identifies bright seventh graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or 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. In addition, they gain valuable benefits and have access to unique resources for gifted students.
The following students participated this year: Alexus Atwood, Mason Basford, Rebecca Chapman and Kegan Day.
Jim B. Satterfield would like to recognize Alexus Atwood, Mason Basford, Rebecca Chapman and Kegan Day, as they qualified for state recognition. These honorees have earned an award by scoring approximately at or above the national average of recent high school graduates on at least one part of the ACT or the SAT. These students are invited to a special recognition ceremony held at Belmont University on May 9, 2016. Congratulations on a job well done.
