Juniors at Spalding, North County highs score perfect on SAT

Anne Arundel County is home to not one, but two of the five Maryland students to receive a perfect score on the new SAT.

Adam Higuera, a junior at Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, scored a 2,400 on the college entrance exam when the 16-year-old Annapolis resident took it in March.

Linthicum's Nathan L. Giles, a 16-year-old junior at North County High School, also attained the maximum score.

Nationwide, 107 students received scores of 2,400 on the test. New writing and other components raised the total maximum from 1,600 points.

Two workers rescued after scaffolding slips

Two workers were rescued Tuesday afternoon at National Security Agency headquarters at Fort Meade after scaffolding on which they were working shifted and left them hanging from the side of a building, an NSA spokesman said.

Both workers were taken to hospitals as a precaution, he said.

The spokesman said NSA could not reveal the names of the workers or the company they worked for.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.
