The Mountain Home Junior High Quiz Bowl Team recently took 3rd place at the Northcentral Arkansas Education Service Cooperative Quiz Bowl competition held in Melbourne on November 2. Team members pictured from left are: Aidan Kerr (7th), Max Goodwin (7th), Kynleigh Reynolds (8th), Savannah Mathews (8th), Christian Belicek (7th), Aiden Burns (8th), and Coach Stephanie Hughes.
Coach Hughes shared that she was incredibly proud of her team. “These students love to learn and compete,” she said. “They are so much fun to be around. Even during our lunch break that day they wanted me to keep quizzing them. This accomplishment can be attributed to their hard work, parents that encourage and support them, and all of the teachers they’ve had through the years that have taught and challenged them. I’m just excited to be along for the ride with them this year.”
