Forty-five seventh-grade students at Opelika Middle School were recently recognized as Duke Tip Scholars.  According to the 7th Grade Duke University Talent Identification Program, a Duke Scholar is an academically gifted student who has shown exceptional potential on their ACT ASPIRE test scores.  In order to be eligible as a Duke Scholar a student must be a current seventh grader and score 95 percent or higher on the ASPIRE in either math or reading.  Qualifying as a Duke Scholar provides students the opportunity to take the college-level SAT or ACT.  Pictured in the group photo are Baylee Baker, Kaitlyn Baker, Calin Birdsong, Carlyle Blackmon, Bianca Brown, Taylor Carswell, Abigail Collins, Marsiah Collins, Blake Culver, Brantley Davis, Eliza Davis, Ashton Denny, Sam Flenniken, Elizabeth Garzee, Paul Goodman, Sabrina Hansen, CJ Harris, Onna Inthavong, , AJ Johnson, Azaria Jones, Raven Jones, Lindsie Klepper, Lauren Landry, Sydney Lowe, Nicole Lowery, Xaria Madden, Adamaris Martinez-Vivanco, Zion MGhee, Jackson McLeod, Kyler Mitchell, Zy’keria Moody, Malayna Morrison, Zaria Moss, Luke Murray, Patrick Myrick, Sydney Niswender, Jordan Nolen, Orah Preston, Will Randolph, Khaci Spence, Riley Stadler, Jarell Stinson, Lilly Straw, Vincent Thammavong, and Amiya Washington.
