HONOLULU (KHON2) — A high school student in Texas is receiving high marks and a lot of attention for his latest test scores.

It is even more impressive, considering how in-person learning for the young student was hindered by the coronavirus pandemic.
“I think it was good for me,” said Swearingen. “I think I had a lot more free time, and I had more time to study and practice things.”
Swearingen hopes his perfect score leads to a scholarship.
