Sampson Independent

County honors Duke TIP students

Sampson County Schools honored seventh-graders for their participation in the Duke University Talent Identification Program.

The program helps academically talented students identify strengths, develop abilities, interests and celebrate achievements during a time when students are forming identities and looking towards the future.

Participants learn about their strengths with an above-level test, either the ACT or SAT, and receive benefits like specialized publications and resources, educational guidance, recognition of their abilities, and academic challenges. These students have received state recognition: Josephine Blackman, Hobbton Middle School; Katelyn Lee, Hobbton Middle School; Riley Heath, Midway Middle School; Anna Grace Jackson, Roseboro-Salemburg, Middle School; Kristian Danks, Hobbton Middle School; Emma Lin, Hobbton Middle School; and Charles Williford, Hobbton Middle School.
