Duke Scholar

Warning:  Proud mamma bragging about her super smart kid!

My son (and 22 of his classmates) was given an award for qualifying as a Duke Scholar at school yesterday.  This means that his scores on his last standard achievement test (which he took back in April) were in the top 5% in the nation.
He is the 3rd boy from the left in the back row.  He's in the 7th grade.

I'm so proud of him!!!  Plus, he gets to take the SAT's in January which will be a great experience for him.  It will give him an idea of what to expect when he takes them for real.


  1. Congratulations to both of you! I know you're proud of him. Also I appreciated your comment about Max. I've been so sporadic about posting it's nice to know that someone occasionally reads a post. ;^)

  2. Thanks Nancy. I love reading your blog. I can tell that you are a professional writer because your's seems so much more polished than mine.
    I try to be funny but I think it just comes off as weird.

  3. Congrats, Tricia! The Duke program is great -- my 2 oldest also took the SAT as part of that program. It's interesting to get their scores and see how they match up against juniors.


Thanks so much for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I read every comment and try to reply to most of them although it may take me a couple of days - I'm a bit slow.
