Duke University honors sixteen Foster scholars

Sixteen Foster Middle School students earned state honors this school year for their scores on college entrance exams. The Foster students are among the top 25 percent of Duke University’s annual 16-state talent search.
The Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) identifies and supports academically talented students. Students identified to participate in the TIP complete either the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examination. The goal of the program is to assist young people with excellent mathematical or verbal aptitudes by providing comparative information concerning their academic abilities and resources for unique educational opportunities.
Some options to be considered for these students include: enrolling in an advanced or honors level course, conducting in-depth independent study in the area of strength, and participating in accelerated and/or enrichment programs during the summer.
The Duke recognized students will be honored at the May 9 meeting of the district’s board of trustees. They are: Luke Armstrong, Allison Biggs, Elizabeth Blair, Soumya Sri Donty, Briana Duffield, Bryan Gilliland, Rachel Grant, Addison Holcomb, Yosef Ibitayo, Uwaye Ihionkhan, Stephen Jayakar, Frances Littlejohn, Trevor O’Connor, Robyn Roper, Gregory Wright and Krisana Yuen.
