WCHS’ Stafford gets top score on ACT
Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Elijah M Stafford, son of Rodney and Jennifer Stafford and a Senior at Wilson Central High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of one percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2013, only 1,162 of more than 1.8 million students earned a composite score of 36.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student’s composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACT’s optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.

In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Jon Whitmore said, “While test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals.” 

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

Lane shifts on I-40 construction
Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Tennessee Department of Transportation contract crews have shifted traffic on Interstate 40 eastbound under Mt. Juliet Road. 

The shift is necessary to all crews to widen and lower the road so large vehicles will have the necessary clearance to get under Mt. Juliet Road. It splits eastbound lanes with one lane right of the work zone and two lanes to the left. This will last roughly two weeks, then will be shifted again. TDOT’s message board signs will locate motorists to the change. 

This work is part of the $55 million widening of I-40 from Central Pike to east of State Route 109.   This project is anticipated to be complete later this winter.

For more information on TDOT construction project activity visit the TDOT SmartWay web site atwww.tn.gov/tdot/tdotsmartway/.  Travelers can also dial 511 from any land-line or cellular phone for travel information or can follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/TN511 for statewide travel information orwww.twitter.com/Nashville511 for traffic information in the Nashville area.

Android and iPhone users can download TDOT’s SmartWay Mobile App to assist them in navigating Tennessee highways. The app provides up-to-the-minute customized traffic information and enables the user to access TDOT’s SmartWay cameras, messages displayed on overhead Dynamic Message Signs, and information on construction related lane closures and incidents on interstates and state routes. The TDOT SmartWay App is free and available for download in the Apple App Store and Play Store for Android.
