TMI student earns top ACT score


Taylor Devlin, a rising senior at TMI – The Episcopal School of Texas, has been recognized for earning the highest possible score on the ACT college readiness test.

She received a composite score of 36, an achievement equaled by less than one-tenth of one percent of all test takers. Among ACT-tested U.S. high school graduates in the class of 2012, only 781 out of more than 1.66 million students earned the highest possible score.

Devlin is president of the National Honor Society chapter at TMI and plays volleyball, basketball and softball. Last year, she was one of two winners of the school’s Alzheimer’s awareness art contest, whose artworks were presented to the local Alzheimer’s Association office and the Barshop Institute at the University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHSC) at San Antonio. Outside of school, she was chosen to participate in the prestigious Voelcker Scholars program at U THSC that admits 20 area high-school students annually to do biomedical research under the direction of faculty members.
