Two RCS sophomores accepted to NCSSM



Darby Madewell, far left, and Kate Branch, both 10th-graders at Roxboro Community School, have been accepted at North Carolina School of Science and Math (NCSSM) for the 2013-14 school year. They are pictured here with RCS Managing Executive Director Sam Kennington and Senator Mike Woodard, who recently visited FBLA members. Students are selected by NCSSM during their 10th-grade year through a competitive process that considers each applicant’s interest in science and mathematics, and includes a review of standardized test scores, past academic performance, special talents, accomplishments and extracurricular interests. Students’ essays and their current schools’ assessments of student characteristics are also considered. Kennington said he was extremely proud of the hard work done and dedication shown by both young women.
