Of the 10 Beaufort Academy 7th graders named as Duke TIP Scholars in the Fall, Cal Harvey, Maris Staley, and William Tumlin have been invited to the State Recognition Ceremony by virtue of their test scores on the ACT or SAT this past winter. Scholars qualified by scoring at or above the 95th percentile on selected sections of designated standardized tests administered during the 6th or 5th grades. According to the Duke TIP website, these “special award ceremonies are held to bring families together so they can celebrate the outstanding achievement of 7th Grade Talent Search participants.”
The March 28th regatta hosted by Beaufort Academy and Beaufort High School ended up being the second largest SAISA North Regatta of the year with 16 boats, 100 sailors and about the same amount of spectators watching from the pier. Congratulations to BA sailors Drummond Koppernaes, Emily Potter, Kathleen Simkins, and Sarah Suber on their success at the event! In addition, Junior Sailing will net around $1200 profit from the regatta, lunches and bake sale. Big thanks to Peter Gamble who volunteers every week coaching our sailors, and to those who came out to support the teams!
