D50 Recognizes Jr. Scholars and Duke TIP Qualifiers

At the May District 50 Board of Trustees meeting, Superintendent Darrell Johnson recognized 25 middle school students as S.C. Junior Scholars and 5 middle school students as Duke TIP Scholars.

The S.C. Junior Scholars program was designed to identify 8th grade students with exceptional academic skill and scholastic achievement. Eligible students must score a 50 or higher on the PSAT in verbal, math, or writing to be identified as a Junior Scholar. The program offers students the chance for academic opportunities during the summer sponsored by South Carolina colleges and universities.

The Duke TIP Scholar program also serves academically gifted and talented students in grades 7th-12th. The program offers students a variety of different services that help them reach their full potential intellectually and academically. District 50 recognized State and Grand Level Duke TIP recipients at the May Board meeting. State recognition is approximately the top 35% of the testing group. Grand recognition is approximately the top 4 % of the testing group. These students have excelled on a national level via their performance on SAT or ACT.
