MONROE, La. (KNOE) - A Ouachita sophomore with autism continues to inspire her classmates and teachers. In this edition of “What’s Your Story”, award-winning feature writer Aaron Dietrich profiles Hannah Schaitel. Her newest accomplishment, scoring 32 on the ACT, surprised even her biggest fans.

A 32 on the ACT represents the 97th percentile. That means, generally, only 3% of test-takers will get a better score (33-36.) Furthermore, Hannah earned a 32 on her first try, which is even rarer. An analysis on ACT.org indicates that only around 1% of first-time test-takers scored a 32. Click here to see the graph. (PDF)
