ACT Achievers Rewarded With Special Day

ACT Achievers Rewarded With Special Day
Posted on 09/23/2019

Each year the Robertson Education Initiative rewards district high school seniors who scored above the benchmark on at least three of the four subjects included on the ACT college admission test.

 

This year, 188 seniors qualified for the “ACT Counts,” outing held at Honeysuckle Hill in Coopertown. That number is up from the 169 qualifiers last school year. 

 

During the day, students enjoyed activities including rock-wall climbing, corn maze, zip line, corn hole, and numerous smaller activities and games. 

 

After a lunch courtesy of county food and restaurant businesses, all students were awarded gifts courtesy of county businesses and individuals. Each student left with a prize valued at least $50 and several others were drawn for cash awards.  Three students from each school received $250 and one was drawn from each school for a $500 prize. 

 

Businesses and donors participating in, and facilitating the day included: the Robertson County School System, Sheriff Van Dyke, BathFitter, Reliant Bank, Community Bank and Trust, F&M Bank, Robertson County Chamber of Commerce, Mt. Carmel Baptist church, Zaxby's, Papa Johns, Sonic, The Depot, Chik Fil A, G.S.
