Local Cool Kid: Minnu Reddivari

White Station Middle School student scores high on ACT

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Minnu Reddivari takes her academics seriously.

A hard worker, years from now, she will look back on her middle school years with pride.

The 7th grader at White Station Middle School takes honors classes, she takes Chinese Language courses and she's a member of the science club--- with a team getting ready for a State Competition. 

She's also very modest and very shy. 

She was honest with Local 24 crews, telling them she didn't crave all of the attention, but her parents and teachers are proud of all of her success.

Including-- a high achievement on the college assessment exam--- ACT.

Current ACT data shows the average composite score is about 21 for test-takers on a scale of 1 to 36.

In Tennessee--- the average score is a little lower--- at 19. 

Minnu earned a 33, something she calls a huge surprise. 

"I've ran into several questions that were pretty tough because they haven't been covered in class or I haven't studied them at home," said Reddivari, "I honestly thought I wouldn't do that great."

"I had to check the envelope to make sure they sent the right scores as soon I opened it," she said.
