Perfect elementary FCAT scorers honored
By PHIL ATTINGER
SEBRING -- Wally Cox, superintendent of Highlands County Schools, said the school district may consider booking the Smith Center at Sebring High School for next year's perfect FCAT score students.
The county has had so many students earn perfect scores on one or more sections of this past spring's Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, that the School Board of Highlands County had to honor students in two separate meetings.
Tuesday's meeting, the second of the two, was standing room only for parents of 77 elementary students who got perfect scores on one or more sections of the test last spring.
Nine students had perfect scores in more than one section of the test.
Each student received a letter and certificate from Gov. Rick Scott, as well as a letter from Florida Representative Cary Pigman, Dist. 55, of Avon Park, who was present Tuesday to shake students' hands alongside Cox and the rest of the school board.
