92 students named Junior Scholars

Five percent of the eighth graders in Aiken County Public School District have been named South Carolina Junior Scholars for the 2017-2018 school year.

To earn this honor, the 92 students received a score of 550 or higher on Evidence-Based Reading and Writing assessments, or a score of 530 or higher on the mathematics section of the PSAT/NMSQT. Some qualified by meeting eligibility criteria as participants in Duke University’s Talent Identification Program during their seventh-grade year.

“Achieving such prestigious designation as a South Carolina Junior Scholar is a tremendous mark of academic distinction for our students, and we are very proud of all those students who have earned this honor,” said Dr. DeeDee Washington, Aiken County chief officer of instruction. “Although we had nearly 100 eighth-grade students to be named as Junior Scholars, we know many more have similar abilities, and we want to challenge and encourage them to continue to stretch themselves academically.”

The Junior Scholars program provides students with access to statewide summer opportunities with participating South Carolina colleges and universities. The South Carolina Department of Education created the Junior Scholars Program in 1986 to identify eighth-grade students with exceptional academic talent.
