(SPRINGFIELD, Ky.) – A Washington County High School student’s name and ACT score has been added to the school’s “Commanding Excellence ACT Wall of Fame”. Lynne Tormoehlen, a WCHS junior, scored a 28. The board was created to recognize students for their achievement of exceeding the standard benchmark. A student who earns a composite score of 28 or above will be celebrated by having their name and score posted. If the student continues to improve their ACT score by taking the exam multiple times, the board will be modified to reflect their highest current score.
Tormoehlen, who says she has already taken the test three times, said she wanted to score high in hopes of obtaining a full-ride scholarship to college. She attended ACT boot camps and received assistance from WCHS science teacher Hannah Bailey with the science portion of the exam. At WCHS, Tormoehlen is a member of the school’s chapter of Future Farmers of America (FFA), the National Honor Society, the Environmental Club, the Commander Bass Fishing team, the Commander Track and Field team and the WCHS Cheerleading Squad.
“It is very exciting to see WCHS recognize students that have accomplished academic distinction,” says Washington County Schools Superintendent Dr. J. Robin Cochran. “Lynne’s academic success is being shown on the national level, as the ACT is a national benchmark. We applaud her for her achievement. The support of teachers and parents is also to be commended.”
Tormoehlen says she plans to take the ACT again, with a goal of scoring 32 or 33. Upon graduation from WCHS, she plans to attend either Purdue University or Western Kentucky University and double major in agriculture economics and agriculture education. She is the daughter of Greg Tormoehlen.
