Crownover student joins collegiate academic talent program
Crownover Middle School seventh-grader Hailey Evans was selected for the Duke University Talent Identification Program, a nonprofit organization that spots academically gifted students and offers them educational resources.
To qualify for the program, students have to score in at least the 95th percentile on a standardized test that matches their grade level. Evans will now take the ACT or SAT tests, college entrance exams typically taken by juniors in high school.
Once she takes either test, she becomes eligible for scholarships, college prep materials and educational programs on the Duke campus in Durham, N.C.
