Four local students celebrate perfect ACT scores

JOPLIN, Mo. – Four Southwest Missouri students today celebrated their perfect ACT Test results.

The following students at Thomas Jefferson scored a perfect 36:

  • Phoenix Wade
  • Samantha Seto
  • Nat Curtis
  • Emalee Ro

“I didn’t expect it at all, to be honest. I completely bombed the science section. I was an absolute mess after taking the test, so it was totally unexpected to find out the score,” said Ro.

Officials say fewer than a half-percent of students achieve a perfect score.
