The Pequot Library has announced the opening of its next Special Collections exhibition. Riot, Sedition, Insurrection: Media and the Road to the American Revolution will open to the public on Thursday February 20, 2020 with a cocktail reception and presentation. The exhibition will remain on view through May 3, 2020. In the years preceding the American Revolution, printing presses in the thirteen colonies churned out a wave of seditious literature. A swirl of pamphlets, posters, newspapers, and other print media, not often grounded in fact, fomented a climate of rebellion against the British crown. Looking at the same works that circulated in the streets, coffeehouses, and homes of Revolutionary-era Americans, the exhibition tells the story of how the media environment shifted public opinion from loyalty to rebellion.

&fwd=ProductPage&ed=false&headline=Stamford High School Juniors Allie Findeisen and Panos Ketonis Achieved Perfect ACT Scores&published=Jan 23, 2020 - 5:54:47 AM" target="_blank">Buy the "As seen on" mug
Stamford, CT - Stamford Public Schools (SPS) announced that Stamford High School (SHS) Juniors Allie Findeisen and Panos Ketonis earned the highest possible composite score of 36 on the ACT standardized test used for college admissions, which they took in December.
According to the ACT organization, less than one-half of one percent of all test takers earn the top score. Among the U.S. high school graduates in the class of 2019, just 4,879 out of nearly 1.8 million students who took the ACT earned a top composite score of 36. This announcement brings the total to four SPS students who have achieved a perfect score in the past nine months. The district previously announced that WHS students Gaurov Bansal and Jacob Sherman also achieved a perfect score of 36.
The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, each scored on a scale of 1–36. A student's composite score is the average of the four test scores. The score for ACT’s optional writing test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score.
In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT CEO Marten Roorda stated, “Your achievement on the ACT is significant and rare. Your exceptional scores will provide any college or university with ample evidence of your readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.”
The ACT is a curriculum-based achievement exam that measures what students have learned in school. Students who earn a 36 composite score have likely mastered all of the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in first-year college courses in the core subject areas.
Both students have attended SPS since Kindergarten. Findeisen attended Rogers International School prior to SHS. She is active in the SHS community as a member of the Strawberry Hill Players, the Student Council and the Stamford High soccer team.
Ketonis attended Newfield Elementary and Rippowam Middle schools. He is also active in the community as a member of the SHS volleyball team and as a competitive swimmer with the Italian Center and New Canaan YMCA swimming teams.
