FHS students score perfect A-C-T

“Cramming” for the exam was simply unnecessary for Farragut High School seniors Kevin Ye and Shreyas Dahotre, who had spent years actively involved in furthering their education. Both scored a perfect 36 on their ACT exam this fall.

Assistant principal Tracy Poulson said, “Less than 1/10th of 1 percent of all students taking the A-C-T score a perfect score. Farragut High School has had at least one student score a 36 on the A-C-T every year for the past four years. We are very proud of these young men and their accomplishments.”

The 17-year-old students say they appreciate their parents’ hard work when they were younger, instilling in them the value and importance of education.

Friends since middle school, they are active in many of the same clubs.

Ye is president of the National Honor Society, VP of the Science club, active in Scholar’s Bowl and the Red Cross Club among others.

Dahotre is president of the Science Club, a Student Government representative and involved in the Red Cross Club, National Honor Society and Scholar’s Bowl.

To prepare for the test, Ye chose to save money and borrow his neighbor’s ACT practice book. He took the test exam once or twice, saw his mistakes and hoped for the best. Hoping for the perfect 36, he was floored when the results came in.

Dahorte’s preparation was similar. He took a few practice exams, scoring around 34 each time. He thought, “I’ll just fix it next time.” He sure did.

Dahorte is a major sports fan. Ye said Dahotre “could tell you anything you’d want to know about sports.”

Ye, when he isn’t busy with school, seats the Farragut community at Aubrey’s Restaurant as a host. He also took up tennis as a hobby this year.

Ye likes the idea of college in the northeast, hoping for acceptance to MIT. But Dahotre is not a fan of the northeast weather and prefers to stay closer to the south. Dahotre said Duke, Georgia Tech and Rice were his college hopefuls.

Both students have their sights set on majoring in Biomedical Engineering in college.

They were recognized on Oct. 7 by the school board.
