CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. - Trevor Ford and academic success have been synonymous since the Jefferson High School senior was a boy.
When Ford was in first grade in central New York, he was in a gifted program. He again was enrolled in a gifted program at Shepherdstown Elementary School after his family moved to Jefferson County, said his mother, Susan Ford.
This year at Jefferson High School, Ford's schedule is loaded with advanced placement and honors courses, and he is vice president of the school's student government organization, the National Honor Society and the school's thespian troupe, according to his mother and school officials.
Ford's latest academic success came last week when he was honored for receiving a perfect score on the ACT college entrance exam, Jefferson County Schools spokeswoman Gail Woods said.
