Caleb Albert, a seventh-grader at Poth Junior High School, participated in the 32nd annual Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP). This program selects seventh-graders based on scores on standardized tests in the school system to participate in the Duke TIP.

Caleb was invited to attend the May 14 state recognition ceremony at Trinity University. Caleb scored better than 57 percent of all the students taking the ACT in English and better than 71 percent of all students taking the ACT in science.

The son of Eric and Stacie Albert of McCoy, Caleb is the grandson of Calvin and Georgia Albert of McCoy and Dorothy and Henry Wiatrek Jr. of Poth.

The selected students take either the National SAT or the National ACT. These tests are the same tests that high school juniors and seniors take for college admissions. In order to be invited to a state recognition ceremony, the students needed to have scored better than 50 percent (on one or more sections of the tests) of all students taking the test -- not just those in the DUKE program.
