Blaine eighth grader honored by Johns Hopkins

20160620_133234Blaine resident Jenna Walters was honored by the John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) last month for her “exceptionally high” test scores.

Walters, who just finished eighth grade at Lynden Christian Middle School, took the SAT college admissions test as part of CTY’s annual talent search program and scored high enough to earn an invitation to the program’s awards ceremony.

Walters was one of more than 30,000 students worldwide who participated in the talent search. Of those, about 30 percent earned an invitation to the awards ceremony, according to a press release from CTY.

The ceremony took place at Seattle Pacific University on May 21.

The CTY is a nonprofit that identifies young people with academic promise and aims to aid their education through summer programs, online courses and other resources.
