Elk Rapids teenager attains a top 36 ACT score

Posted: Updated:
ELK RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -

An Elk Rapids High School junior earned a top score of 36 on the ACT college entrance exam.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports that Austin Wolfgram took the test last month on the same day his father had brain surgery for cancer. He missed just two questions out of 210.

A spokeswoman for ACT says fewer than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the test earn a 36.

Wolfrgam is active in many academic and extracurricular activities, including debate team and soccer. He first took the ACT as an eighth grader, scoring a 32. As a sophomore he earned a 34.
