Altamont Senior Named 2017 QuestBridge Scholar
Julie Beckwith

Altamont Senior Trinity Perdue has been named a 2017 QuestBridge College Match Scholarship recipient. This prestigious national program pairs high-achieving high school seniors from low-income households with full scholarships to the nation's top colleges.

College Match is an extremely competitive process. From a pool of 15,606 applicants, only 918 outstanding students were selected. Academically, the 918 College Matches have an average unweighted GPA of 3.92. On standardized testing, the middle 50 percent received between 1350-1490 on the SAT and between 29-33 on the ACT. Ninety-five percent rank in the top 10 percent of their class.

Students chosen for College Match are "matched" to one of QuestBridge's highly selective college partners, which means they were admitted early with a guaranteed full, four-year scholarship, including tuition, room and board, and other expenses. QuestBridge's college partners include top liberal arts colleges and exceptional research universities. Trinity will enroll this fall as a QuestBridge Scholar at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia.

Congratulations Trinity on this outstanding accomplishment!
