Most juniors fret about it. It is a test with so much riding on it. From college entrance applications, to prestige and honor in the home and community, the Scholastic Aptitude Tests, better known by three little letters, SAT, can cause many to worry. One Methacton High School junior can now rest easy. She’s done the nearly impossible task. Lucy Jai, a Methacton 11th-grader, scored a perfect score on her SATs.

The Methacton School board of directors recognized Jai for her accomplishments during a presentation on May 27 during its public board meeting.

“Lucy Jai has brought considerable recognition to her school community by obtaining a perfect score of 2400 on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), a rare and significant accomplishment, therefore be it resolved that the Methacton School District board of directors go on record this 27th day of May, 2014, honoring the spirit of the exemplary performance,” read board president S. Christian Nascimento. Nascimento was joined by Methacton School District Superintendent Dr. David A. Zerbe in congratulating the teen.

A citation was given to Jai, who attended the meeting with her mother and father, Tuesday night. A proclamation and presentation were given in her honor.
