Dustin Humphries Dustin Humphries Roxboro Community School (RCS) sophomore Dustin Humphries was accepted to the North Carolina School of Science and Math (NCSSM) for the upcoming fall semester. He will be the first RCS student to accept his invitation to join the residential program of the school since Emily Pierce in 2014.

At RCS, Humphries serves as the secretary for the Interact Club and is a member of the AP Academy cohort. He was also a committee chair on the Judiciary Committee for the North Carolina Youth Legislative Assembly for the 2017 session.

To be accepted to NCSSM, Humphries had to complete a rigorous application and take the SAT test - a test that is designed for high school seniors.

Humphries said, “I am ready to embrace all of the opportunities which the school will provide, and hope to be challenged to thrive in a self-motivated work environment.”

At NCSSM, Humphries plans to study certain subjects that aren’t offered at RCS, which include engineering and advanced biology.
