High test score leads to big recognition

For one Charlotte Christian School sixth grader, the skills needed to successfully take a test come naturally. 

Brandon Hay received a medallion for his composite score in the 99th percentile on the eighth grade Duke Talent Identification Program EXPLORE test.

The Duke TIP is a nonprofit organization that focuses on serving academically gifted youth.

Nationally, in January and February, 288 students out of 5,686 Duke TIP talent search participants received this honor. There were 49 honorees from North Carolina.

Brandon was honored at the 32nd annual DUKE TIP North Carolina State Recognition Ceremony on June 1, at Wake Forest University. Keynote speaker at the event was Hugh Howards, professor of mathematics at Wake Forest.
