Crawford scores
Perfect ACT score one of two in state

Madelyn Crawford, left, a Farragut High School senior, has the distinction of being one of two Tennessee students to score a perfect 36 on October’s ACT test.

“I was surprised,” Madelyn said of being told she had scored perfect.

The October test date was Madelyn’s second time taking the test, although her first score, 33, was well above the average test-taker’s score of 21.

“I had always been told you always take the test twice. That is what all the teachers and books and everything recommend. So I went in the first time and I made a 33 and then I went to take it again.

“Probability wise, chances were I would score worse than I did the first time. Then I got the score back and it was a complete surprise,” she said.

Madelyn took the test both times without the aid of ACT preparatory courses.

“I had taken the home practice and had gone over some math formulas the night before,” she said.

Madelyn is a very active young woman and admits she has very little free time.

“I am pretty involved in a lot of different things and don’t have a lot of spare time. I am involved with the band — I play on the drum line and I really enjoy that.

“I am a part of the indoor drum line that meets after school and I love to read. I have always loved to read, so any free time I do get I usually spend reading or spending time with friends.

“I am a part of [Student Government Association], Nation-al Honor Society, the Tri-M Music Honors Society,” she added.

Madelyn also is active in her church, Concord United Meth-odist.

Already having applied to Washington and Lee University, Emory College, The University of Georgia and The University of Tennessee, Madelyn is anxiously awaiting acceptance letters.

When asked what she planned to major in, Madelyn replied, “Definitely something science. I am looking to go pre-med so my plan is to just take as many science classes as I can and then get off where I am happiest.”
