The Geographic Bee was last Friday. I want to congratulate all the 90 people who
were in the Bee. You all did a great job in the Bee. We had 22 people who to do a
tiebreaker for a spot in the finals. 22 people were there, but only one had to come out for
the final place in the finals. The ten finalists in the Bee were Daniel Drummond, Cam
Clark, Arturo Valles, Riley Alef, Easton Hall, Josh Creekmore, Jonah Zahller, Walter
Smith, Brianna Smith, and Jessye Staten. The winner of the Geographic Bee was Josh
Creekmore, 2nd place was Riley Alef, and 3rd place was Walter Smith. Josh Creekmore
will take a 1 hour written test which will be sent to Washington D.C. for grading. The
top 100 students scores will attend the State Bee in Pearl in April. Thank you to Mrs.
Anita Callicutt, Mrs. Lynn Harrison, Mrs. Elaine Watson, Mrs. Kate Swords, Katisha
Knox, and Ms. Leanne George for help coordinating the Bee.
