Eight Marietta Middle Students
Achieve State Level Recognition – Duke Tip
Duke University Talent Identification Program (Tip)

MARIETTA, GA -Eight Marietta Middle School (MMS) students, Scott Baker, Isabelle Chalker, Ethan Harper, Samuel Judd, Adam Profili, Zoe Shippee, Aarushi Tandon and Rebecca Riley Washington have earned state level recognition in the annual Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP). Five more earned this recognition than last year.

“Of the thirty-five students who participated in the Duke TIP, eight qualified for state recognition,” said Forrestella Taylor, Principal of Marietta Middle School. “Students must score in the 95th percentile or higher in two or more categories on a national norm-referenced test such as SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment college entrance examination for consideration to participate in the Duke TIP.”

Each student will be recognized at the Duke TIP State Award Ceremony during the month of May/June. The Duke TIP Program is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving academically gifted and talented youth. As a world leader in gifted and talented education, Duke TIP works with students, their families, and educators to identify, recognize, challenge, engage, and help students reach their highest potential.
