Taylor Guthrie, a student from Chandler, was recently honored as one of the brightest young students in the nation at a statewide awards ceremony for academically advanced children sponsored by The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth (CTY).

The Center honored Taylor, a participant in the CTY Talent Search, for her exceptional performance on a rigorous, above-grade-level test given to academically talented second- through eighth-grade students.

Taylor, a student at St. John Bosco Interparish School in Ahwatukee, was one of more than 40,000 students from more than 120 countries who participated in the CTY talent search. Because of the difficulty of the tests, only 25 to 30 percent of students who participated earned an invitation to a CTY awards ceremony where they are individually honored for their academic performance and potential. Most students honored in 2013 CTY award ceremonies also qualified academically for CTY’s summer courses and online classes.
