Two Conway High School juniors have made perfect scores on the ACT.
Gail Oudekerk and Archer Murray, both members of the graduating class of 2019, scored ‘36’ on the test, which was given to the entire junior class on February 28th.
In addition to these two, 28 CHS students scored 30 or above on the exam.
“We are beyond proud of these students,” says Principal Jason Lawrence. “This is an outstanding group of kids. They are doing great things now, and will continue to do great things. Stay tuned.”
In Arkansas, the ACT is given free of charge to all students one time during their high school career. Conway High School offers the test to students during the spring semester of their junior year.
The ACT is accepted for admission by all Arkansas colleges and many out of state universities as well.
Conway’s average ACT score is 20.8 compared to the state average of 19.4.
Superintendent Dr. Greg Murry says the district has much to celebrate.
“These students’ scores are a culminating achievement…reflective of the work done throughout their academic careers and shared by teachers and parents who have helped shaped them as they’ve learned and grown,” Murry said.
Conway has now had 6 students in the last 4 years who have made the perfect ’36.’
