Jamaican Ambassador Audrey P. Marks is proudly promoting the success of a Jamaican engineering student in Virginia for achieving a perfect score on his college entrance exams.
Mrs. Marks said Damien Chang, 16, is the first Jamaican student to achieve 2,400 on his SAT. Damien topped the record set 15 years ago by Romero Heyman, a Jamaican who scored 1,570 when the highest possible score was 1,600.
In a letter to Damien, the ambassador expressed her “enormous sense of pride.”

Damien, a student at the Woodberry Forest School near Charlottesville, is one of only 400 students to earn a perfect score out of 1.5 million who took the examination last year, Mrs. Marks said.
