Allison Horan, a Sullivan’s Island resident, was awarded a special recognition medal at Furman University last week for her combined SAT scores of 1610. Allison’s reading score of 640 places her in the top 92 percentile of college bound South Carolina high school seniors – quite the feat for a girl who is supposed to be in the sixth grade. Allison graduated fifth grade from Sullivan’s Island Elementary School last year and currently attends University School of the Lowcountry in Mount Pleasant. Allison was also awarded the South Carolina Silver Key Award this year in the Scholastic writers contest.
