NEW ORLEANS, LA - MAY 14: A McDonogh #35 Senior High School graduate Malik Hayes hugs a fellow graduate at his commencement at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on May 14, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Hayes' home was flooded during Hurricane Katrina when he was eight years old. Thousands of Hurricane Katrina survivors attempted to use the convention center as a shelter of last resort in the days following the storm, yet it lacked power, water, food and medical supplies. McDonogh 35 was damaged by flooding from Hurricane Katrina and was the first high school for African-Americans in the state of Louisiana. It is one of the last remaining traditional public schools in the city. The tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which killed at least 1836 and is considered the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history, is August 29. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

In such a crazy time, it’s good to see some positive news in the media. A North Carolina teen who goes to Leesville Road High School in Raleigh has just accomplished something pretty incredible.

Spencer Leach just learned that he earned a 36 on the test; which is the highest grade you can receive.  And if you’re wondering how rare that is; fewer than half of 1 percent of students who take the ACT earn a top score.

The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading, and science, each scored on a scale of 1-36. When I was graduating high school, I did not take the ACT, but the SAT. Regardless, I can assure you I did not do nearly as well on my test.

Congrats Spencer!
