Posted on 01/20/2023

Five Florence School District 3 students have been named as 2022-2023 South Carolina Junior Scholars.

Eighth graders Colt Carden, Zyien Gamble and Lily Floyd from J. Paul Truluck Creative Arts and Science Magnet School along with Joseph James and Korey Fulton from Dr. Ronald E. McNair Junior High were recognized by the FSD3 board of trustees at its regular monthly meeting Thursday, January 19.

Junior Scholars eligibility requirements are a score of 550 or higher on the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing or 530 or higher on the Math portion of the PSAT/NMSQT.

The Junior Scholar recipients will be recognized at local awards ceremonies, receive an Award of Merit from the State Department of Education, and are invited to attend summer opportunities at participating South Carolina colleges and universities. 

The South Carolina Junior Scholars Program was developed in 1985-86 by the State Department of Education to identify eighth grade students with exceptional academic talent and to determine strategies for their inclusion in special programs.
