Vilma Angulo - St. Bonaventure Church
DAVIE | Richard “Chase” Mooney, a seventh-grade student at St. Bonaventure School in Davie, is among the students being honored by the Duke University Talent Identification Program (Duke TIP) for their exceptional scores on the ACT or SAT. He will be recognized at the Grand Recognition Ceremony, to be held May 22 at Duke University’s Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Duke TIP’s 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students across the United States who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level standardized test. As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level college-entrance exams to learn more about their abilities.
Duke TIP then hosts annual recognition ceremonies for the seventh graders with remarkable ACT or SAT scores. Those with the highest scores are invited to the Grand Recognition Ceremony. Of 53,843 students who took the exams through Duke TIP — all of whom are in the 95th percentile of their grade level — only 2,072 were invited to the Grand Recognition Ceremony.
Four additional St. Bonaventure students were given citations: Adrian Arredondo, Nya Correa-Claudio, Laura Maria Garzon, and Julian Villegas.
