Kweller Prep, Katie Holmes, and SAT Scores

Earlier this week, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes announced their decision to divorce after 6 years of marriage, stirring a media frenzy over one of the last  “Super –Couples” in Hollywood.
Shortly after hearing the sad news that Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are splitting up, I turn to my next highly reliable source, (pun intended) Wikipedia, to verify that this separation is indeed happening.

First, I run a Wikipedia search on Tom Cruise. He has an interesting bio. Seems like he has overcome a lot of obstacles; drunk abusive father, poor family, etc.

But more interestingly than that, when I run the wikipedia search on Katie Holmes, I notice how much attention is given to Katie Holmes’ high SAT score and her 4.0 high School G.P.A.

According to Wikipedia, Katie Holmes:

“graduated from the all-female Notre Dame Academy (also her mother's alma mater), where Katie was a 4.0 student  At St. John's Jesuit, a nearby all-male high school, Holmes appeared in school musicals, playing a waitress in Hello, Dolly! and Lola in Damn Yankee. She scored 1310 out of 1600 on her SAT and was accepted to Columbia University (and attended for a summer session);[8][12] her father wanted her to be a doctor.

I find it amazing how Katie’s SAT scores and high school GPA made it to Wikipedia—it’s one of the very first things you read about her.

 What if your SAT score was one of the very first things people would read when they’d read about you  on wikipedia?

Tom Cruise, Katie is a good girl. Just look at her scores.  We at Kweller Prep hope that Tome Cruise finds a way to reconcile with this high school overachiever.
