Congratulations Meera Sehgal - A John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth Honoree
The John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth (CTY) recently honored Meera Sehgal, a student at Patton Middle School as one of the brightest middle school students in the world at an international awards ceremony.
The Center honored Meera, for her exceptional performance on the SAT, ACT, or similar college-readiness assessment taken as part of the 2015-16 CTY Talent Search. CTY uses above-grade-level testing to identify advanced students from around the world and provide a clear picture of the students’ true academic abilities.
This year, more than 27,000 students in second through eighth grades participated in CTY’s Talent Search, representing all 50 states and more than 60 countries. Seventh and eighth graders from this group who scored high enough on their above-grade-level test were invited to attend CTY’s Grand Ceremony Oct. 16 on the Johns Hopkins University’s main campus. Meera was one of nearly 1,000 students and their families who were invited to the ceremony this year.
Students honored at the 2016 Grand Ceremony also qualified for CTY’s summer, online, and family programs, through which academically advanced students meet and form a community of engaged
learners with other bright students from around the world.
