A Perf-ACT Performance

Zachary Wollman, a senior at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School, earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on his ACT college admissions and placement exam.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. While the number of students earning a score of 36 varies from year to year, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn the top score.

Along with his academic talents, Wollman is an active member of the National Helpers team, volunteers at local animal shelters, and is a member of the school’s tennis team, Science Olympiads, Mathletes and Knights for Nature. Continuing his academic journey, Wollman will apply to several elite colleges, with Massachusetts Institute of Technology as his top choice.

At the Elwood Board of Education business meeting on Sept. 24, Superintendent of Schools Peter Scordo and Elwood-John H. Glenn High School Interim Principal Dr. James Ruck presented Wollman with an award certificate and proclamation from the Town of Huntington for his exceptional accomplishment.

“We are extremely proud to share the incredible accomplishments of a very special young man who clearly represents all that is good about the Elwood School District,” said Dr. Ruck in his address at the Board of Education meeting.
