Augusta Christian Schools pupils were selected recently to participate in the Duke University Talent Identification Program. The TIP Talent Search is beginning its 24th year and is the largest program of its kind in the nation. The program identifies academically talented seventh-graders based on standardized test scores achieved while attending elementary or middle school. Candidates are identified and invited to complete either the SAT I: Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examination. Through the sharing of information, programming, recognition ceremonies, and the special attention that is inherent in the identification process, TIP offers supplementation of local efforts to motivate, enrich, and academically challenge some of our community's brightest young people.
The pupils areTommy Mobley (front row, from left), Douglas Brown, Ryan Evans, Lauren Gilpin, Brittany Cipollone, Paige Wallace and Anna Murrell; Drew Alexander (middle row, from left), Evan Vintson, Christine Rhodes, Abbey Ferrell, Martha Campbell, Casey Mathis, Chelsea Petty, LeAnn Harris and Erica West; Elizabeth Piggott (back row, from left), Rachel Hill, Melany Lopez, Stephen Bloedel, MacKenzie Mullins, Cameron Hoover, William Banks, Andrew Lawandus and Robby Hambrick.
