Kevin LaMaster, an eighth-grader at Saint Jude Catholic School in Fort Wayne, scored in the top 1 percent in the nation among students taking the American Mathematics Competition (AMC) 8 test for middle school students.

LaMaster was among 53 students who took the test Nov. 13 at the University of Saint Francis, the university said in a news release.
