During the Tuesday, Aug. 8 meeting of the Jackson City Schools Board of Education, students from all three of Jackson's elementary schools were honored for earning perfect scores on the American Institutes of Research (AIR) tests, which were given this past spring.

At Southview Elementary, a total of seven students achieved perfect scores, which is the most in the school's history according to Principal Phil Kuhn.

Those Southview students who earned perfect scores were Haley Ross (Jason and Chantel Ross) for 3rd-grade math, Ella Armstrong (Patrick and Amy Armstrong) for 4th-grade math, Noah Saunders (Jason and Victoria Saunders) for 4th-grade math, Eli Broermann (Mark and Amber Broermann) for 5th-grade math, Sidney Hughes (Travis and Jennifer Hughes) for 5th-grade math, Dayne Neff (Dac and Heather Neff) for 5th-grade math, and Kyley Duncan (Brian and Jennifer Duncan) for 5th-grade reading.

Kuhn described this as a major accomplishment that is a credit to not only the students, but the teachers as well.

Southview student Noah Saunders also gave a speech after being acknowledged by the board. Saunders explained that he has autism, making certain things harder for him, in his own words.

"I didn't let my autism stop me," Saunders said. "I did my best and studied hard. Anyone can get a perfect score like me, you just have to study hard and believe. If you believe, you can do anything."

Next year, Saunders said he is aiming to earn more perfect scores.

"I may have autism," he said, "but, I won't let that stop me."
