GRAVETTE Twelve high school students received the “Arkansas Student Achievement Award” from the Arkansas ACT Council for their performance on the PLAN (Pre-ACT Assessment).
These students are on target to meet or exceed ACT’s College Readiness Benchmarks by graduation. ACT’s College Readiness Benchmarks are empirically-based and identify the level of achievement necessary in English, mathematics, reading and scienceto have a successful college freshman experience.
The students receiving this recognition from the Arkansas ACT Council are Stephen Benson, Jordan Harrington, Connor Houtchens, Brandon Meek, Morgan Rich, Thomas Roesch, Seth Rutherford, Darrick Strzelecki, Jonathan Sturges, Ben Walser, Kaleb Ward and Katelyn Wilkins.
According to Karen Pennell, ACT Assistant Vice President and Southwest Regional Manager, “The Arkansas ACT Council recognizes those students who are making significant strides to prepare themselves for college by taking rigorous courses and meeting the PLAN (Pre-ACT) College Readiness Benchmarks. We also want to recognize that student PLAN (Pre-ACT) achievement is the result of a strong commitment by Gravette High School teachers, staff, administrators and parents to increase college readiness for all students.”
