As many high schoolers eagerly await their results of the ACT college admissions test, GCMS 7th grader Chase Richardson has received state recognition for his.

Richardson’s overall score of 23 included a 22 in both English and math, and a 24 in both science and reading, 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.

Teresa Blain has been GATE teacher for 12 years and says that during that time only five students have earned state recognition in all four testing areas. One of those five just happens to be Chase’s sister, Bailey, who earned the distinction last year.

While he studied “probably six months” and took plenty of practice test for the exam, Chase still found time to participate in sports. He’s on both the tennis and basketball teams.

He’s also been involved in the legislative Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA). This past session he authored a bill that passed both the House and Senate and was also named an Outstanding Bill. Next year he has his sights set on running some of the action on the Leadership Team.

Chase was formally recognized during a special ceremony at WKU on Friday, May 19. The event was sponsored by The Center for Gifted Studies in conjunction with the Duke University Talent Identification Program.
