Congrats To This Clovis North Student!

Congrats To This Clovis North Student!

Spencer Howells, a senior at Clovis North High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on his ACT college admission and placement exam. Nationally, on average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earns the top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2014, only 1,407 of nearly 1.85 million students earned a composite score of 36.

 

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.

 

ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. four-year colleges and universities. Exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

Central Valley Man Fields Dreams Following

$3.25 Million Lottery Win

 

SACRAMENTO – A new car. A new house? Those are all things you expect to hear from someone describing their plans after winning the Lottery. However, Salvador Marquez sees even bigger things in his family’s future following his surprise win.

 

Marquez hit the top prize on a $5 California Lucky for Life Scratchers® ticket he purchased at a gas station in Fresno County. (You can see a scanned image of his winning ticket below, complete with the word “LIFE” on line one.) That’s $3.25 million! Marquez will have the option of selecting a lump sum payment of $1.9 million or weekly payments of $2,500 a week for 25 years. Either way, his newfound wealth is automatically exposing a wealth of opportunity that simply wasn’t there earlier.
