Forest Hill High School seniors Sylvionna Horton and Martio Silas recently scored a 30 on the reading portion of the ACT. Both Martio and Sylvionna achieved composite scores above the national average—Martio scored a 21 and Sylvionna 26. Still, these high-achievers intend to test again to increase their composite scores.

"Math and science are my favorite subjects so I was surprised but glad to see my reading score was a 30," said Martio.

"I always work hard, and knowing that I did well on this one just makes me want to work harder," said Sylvionna.

Martio is a JROTC cadet at Forest Hill. He has enlisted in the Army and plans to attend college. Horton plans to attend Tougaloo College on an academic scholarship after graduation.
