Cheraw High School had 567 students to take the Citizenship Test. The top-scoring students were:
Eleventh Grade: John Gathings, who made a perfect score of 30, Trey Dordal and Nikki Walters, who made 26 and tenth grade students, Joshuah Campbell, Jacob Crouse, and Graham Kiser (who all scored 27); 9th Grade: Jonathan Chavis, Chris Dixon, Billy Dang, and Donovan Rouseau (who all scored 25). No seniors took the test.
The questions on the Cheraw High School version of the test included:
What is the supreme law of the land?
Who is one of your state’s U.S. Senators?
How old do citizens have to be to vote for President?
Where is the Statue of Liberty?
Why does the flag have 50 stars?
A daily question from the new Citizenship Test now appears on the announcements sheet for Cheraw High School. Teachers are asked to read aloud the question to see if their students know the answer. If the students and the teachers do not know the answers, they are asked to consult a member of the Social Studies Department. After all 100 questions appear in the daily announcements; another version of the Citizenship Test will be administered in mid-March in the social studies classes.
