Talented Max

by | January 5, 2017

As I think we’ve mentioned before on this blog, Langsford has been around long enough now that we are starting to receive some “Blasts from the Past” as clients want to let us know how their children are doing, years after working with Langsford. We received the following by email just this week:

My son, Max, went through the Langsford Center program 5 years ago when he was in second grade. I just wanted to share his success story with you all.  My son not only qualified for the Duke Talent Identification Program in the category of “Critical Reading,” but he took the SAT in the Fall and scored high enough in that category to qualify for State recognition. Qualification for State recognition requires a child to score in the top 30% of the talent pool.

 

Max has been so successful in Language Arts. With each of his successes we always think of the Langsford Center and are so grateful!. It was the best money we ever, ever spent. Max loves to read, and you would not believe the things he chooses to read. At this moment, he is alternating between three different compilations of plays: William Beckett, George Kaufmann and Neil Simon. He is reading these for fun! Reading is one of the best pleasures in Max’s life.You will also take pride in knowing that Max recently won Young Authors at the Oldham County level for his grade level for the third time. Langsford Center truly opened his world.

We have been wavering between YPAS and St. Francis High School for our high school choices. Max is heavily involved in theater.

I wanted to let Stephen and Claudia know what the end product has been 5 years down the road.

I am such a fan of the Langsford Center. Please feel free to add Max’s information to your website.

 

You all are The Best!
