The room was packed with proud parents and students at the July 1 School Board meeting, and Superintendent Doug Brown opened the meeting with a few words of praise for 10 students in the Madison school district who made perfect scores on one or more sections of the FCAT test.
Seven of the students and their families were present, as Brown called them up one by one, congratulated them and presented them with certificates, signed by Gov. Rick Scott, recognizing their achievement.
The seven children recognized at the meeting included Camryn Alderman, with a perfect score in reading; Mattie Barnes for a perfect score in math; Halie Wetherington, with a perfect score in reading; Montoya Brown, with a perfect score in reading; Justin Barnett, with a perfect score in math; Matthew Gassler, with perfect scores in both reading and math; and Tanner Renfroe, with a perfect score in math.
Three other children not present also made perfect scores and will be receiving certificates: Kaitlyn Farnell, reading; Drew French, reading; and Ethan Myers, math.
Congratulations to all 10 students for their achievements.
