Eleven students from Kannapolis City Schools have been selected for the prestigious Duke University Gifted Program, called Duke TIP (Talent Identification Program).

Hunter Cook, a student at Kannapolis Middle School, was selected for the Duke TIP 7
th Grade Talent Search. Ten other KCS students were selected for the 4th through 6th Grade Talent Search program:

  • Trent Adams (Forest Park)
  • Trystin Chadwick (Woodrow Wilson)
  • Freddy Dapper (Woodrow Wilson)
  • Isaac Geoghan (Forest Park)
  • Yong Sen Huang (Fred L. Wilson)
  • Evan Miller (Forest Park)
  • Bryce Morgan (Fred L. Wilson)
  • Kaidon Shinn (Fred L. Wilson)
  • Jack Smith (Forest Park)
  • Desire Stout-Bennett (Forest Park)

The students were selected because of their exceptional performance on grade-level standardized tests. Only students who score at or above the 95th percentile on standardized tests qualify to enter the Duke TIP program.

Students in the 7th Grade Talent Search are invited to take the ACT or SAT, which are designed for college-bound eleventh and twelfth graders. Students in the 4th through 6th Grade Talent Search are invited to take the optional PSAT 8/9 exam, which is designed for eighth and ninth graders. Taking an above-grade-level test is an experience that allows these gifted students to more accurately gauge their academic abilities and potential.

All the students in the Duke TIP program also receive a variety of support services and gain access to research and other information about using their academic abilities more effectively.

KCS is extremely proud of these students and their academic achievements.
