Eligibility for participation in the Duke Talent search is an honor that required exceptional academic ability, and we applaud all the students from BJHS who were recognized. The students who were named Duke Scholars were eligible to take the ACT or SAT test with juniors and seniors. McKenzie Castro and Tre Miller took the ACT test, and based on their qualifying scores, they were invited to attend a State Recognition Ceremony. McKenzie and Tre were among the top 38 percent of all 7th graders in the nation who took the ACT college entrance exam. This honor will afford them opportunities to participate in a wide range of educational programs including Independent Learning, eSeminars, and Scholar Weekends. Since they met the qualifying score criteria set by Duke, they will also receive information on Duke TIP's renowned summer programs.
