Hudson High classmates share perfect ACT score

April 30, 2016

HUDSON - Achieving a perfect score on the ACT college entrance exam is a feat that less than one-tenth of one percent of American students achieve annually.

So, it's highly unlikely that two students from the same high school would score a perfect 36 on the exam. But, that's just what happened to Hudson High School juniors Brandon Bagley and Parker Holum. They both thought they did pretty well on the ACT test. Then they learned recently they reached the pinnacle.

A news outlet reports Holum plans to visit Yale, Princeton and Stanford with his eye on becoming a biomedical engineer or doctor. Bagley's parents are engineers, so he says he'll likely follow that course at the University of Minnesota or University of Wisconsin.

Holum says he celebrated with a trip to Chipotle where his dad let him add guacamole to his order.
