ANKENY, Iowa - An Ankeny High School student has earned the highest possible score on the ACT college entrance test.

Zane Eason achieved a 36, which puts him in the top two-tenths of one percent of student who take the test.

Ankeny High School Principal Peter Apple says Eason's academic and extra-curricular activities are responsible for his high score.

“This is an incredible achievement for Zane and we can all be proud of the effort that he put in to make this happen,” said Apple. “His efforts both academically and in extracurricular activities boosted his performance on the ACT and he is a wonderful example of a student living the HAWK way!"

Eason was also praised, along with others who've achieved a perfect score, by ACT Chief Executive Officer Marten Roorda. "A perfect score is a significant and rare achievement," Roorda said. "This exceptional score provides colleges or universities with ample evidence of a student's readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead."
