8 Huron students who aced ACT explain their success

Eight Huron High School seniors earned perfect scores of 36 when they took their ACT tests last spring – it’s an honor they share with less than one-tenth of 1 percent of test-takers nationwide, according to the American College Testing website.

River Rats earning a perfect score included: Jong Hwan Koo, Pelham Brown, Joshua Cheng, Derek Wu, Sussy Pan, Heemyung Hwang, Joo Young Moon and Philip Tsao.

So how did they do it? It was a combination of smarts and preparation, according to an article by Kyle Feldscher of AnnArbor.com. Click here to see the full story.
