Wayne High School graduate Marta Pulfer was one of 17 Nebraska high school students honored in a ceremony Monday at the State Capitol for her perfect score on the ACT exam.

Pulfer and the other students were honored by Gov. Pete Ricketts during a ceremony in Lincoln. Less than one-tenth of one percent of American students who take the exam achieve a perfect score. Nebraska's average ACT score was 21.4, higher than the national average of 20.8.

Pulfer, the daughter of Kent and Jodi Pulfer, achieved a perfect score of 36 on the ACT test this past school year. She will be studying biomedical engineering at Texas A&M this fall.
