CCHS Freshman Divine Ezinma Receives "Grand Recognition" Award from WKU

Calloway County High School freshman Divine Ezinma recently received “Grand Recognition” from Western Kentucky University as a part of the Talent Identification Program of Kentucky. “Grand Recognition” is the highest honor given and is for students whose composite ACT score was 29 or higher.

The Talent Identification Program of Kentucky (TIP-KY) offers above-level testing to assess where students are academically in order for educators and families to guide students to relevant resources, appropriate enrichment programming, and other services that will challenge and encourage growth.

“The Center for Gifted Studies has been engaged in a talent search for a long time, and now it is our pleasure to fill the void created by the closure of Duke TIP with TIP-KY,” said Dr. Julia Roberts, Mahurin Professor of Gifted Studies and Executive Director of The Center for Gifted Studies and The Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science. 

In addition to being a standout student, Divine also is on the CCHS academic team and robotics team. After high school, his current plans are to attend college and to become a medical doctor.
