Gifted resident earns student award

Special to The Sun

The New Jersey Association for Gifted Children (NJAGC) has recognized Marlton resident Ria Blunt as a recipient of the 2024 Distinguished Student Award in Academics and Leadership for students in third through fifth grades.

Each year, NJAGC recognizes students who have also distinguished themselves in visual, literary or performing arts.

Blunt is passionate about mathematics, programming and computer hardware. At 9 years old, she became the youngest person in Burlington County to earn college credits. A self‐directed learner, she successfully prepared for and passed the College Algebra CLEP (College‐Level Examination Program).

Blunt is a skilled programmer adept at building hardware components and debugging technical issues. She has independently created projects involving electrical circuits, microcontrollers, JavaScript, and – most recently – C++.

Blunt has spent more than 100 hours as a lab assistant at the Evesham Township Elementary School’s afterschool coding clubs and the township library’s Kids Tech Club. For her service hours, she has earned a gold medal from the President’s Volunteer Service.
