As many high schoolers eagerly await their results of the ACT college admissions test, GCMS 7th grader Colton Glenn recently learned that he will receive state recognition for his. Glenn’s overall score of 21 included a 23 in reading and a 21 in math, meeting or exceeding ACT benchmarks. 

The test is offered to the district’s 7th grade Gifted and Talented Education students through the Duke University Talent Identification Program.

He admitted to a little nervousness in taking the test and with a goal of 18, “didn’t really expect to get my score, but I was happy with it,” he said.

While preparation took plenty of study, Colton still found time to participate in sports. He plays both middle and high school soccer, and runs for the GCHS track team.

He’s also been involved in the legislative Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA). In this year’s session, he and a team of friends authored a successful teen bumper sticker bill to let other drivers know a teen was manning the wheel. 

Colton will be formally recognized during a special ceremony at WKU on May 23. The event is sponsored by The Center for Gifted Studies in conjunction with the Duke University Talent Identification Program.
