BCEF Names ACT Prep Winner

March 09, 2015

The Beal City Education Foundation started an initiative earlier this year in conjunction with the Beal City Education Association and the Beal City Board of Education to provide test prep software called Methods Test Prep, to give students the opportunity to prepare for the ACT.  In this partnership the cost of the software was split between the BCEF and the BOE.  The BCEA provided support for the software by allowing students time in and out of class and on the weekends to use the software.  During January and February, on Saturday mornings and Sunday nights, for two hours members of the BCEF, the BCEA and the BOE opened the computer lab to give students an opportunity to study and to provide guidance to students on the ACT test.

The students studied for over a hundred hours and answered over 8,000 sample test questions during these study sessions.  Each student was awarded one ticket with their name on it for each hour they spent at the Saturday and Sunday test prep sessions.  Then after the ACT test on March 4th the tickets went into a hat and one ticket was drawn for a prize of an IPad mini.  The winner this year was Junior Kendall Flaugher.  Kendall studied more hours during the study session than any of his classmates!  Kendall told Mrs. Millerov that his goal was to raise his projected score by a couple of points.  Good Luck Kendall on this goal your efforts were commendable and will pay off.

Congratulations to all of the students that participated and took advantage of the study sessions.  The BCEF, BCEA and the BOE all thank you for your effort and look forward to hearing how the test prep software helped you all become winners by raising your ACT scores.
