Congratulations to Aden Zentz on being selected to represent our school at the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference this summer.  Also, congratulations to Levi Blankenship on being selected as our  alternate.

Congratulations to Megan McHenry for representing our school and Adair County in the American Legion Oratorical Contest.  Megan delivered a speech at the county level contest in December and  advanced to the First District Contest in Palmyra in January.

Congratulations to the 5th and 6th grade academic teams that had an awesome season this year.  They practiced every Monday and Thursday afternoon in order to prepare themselves for two tournaments in January.  They traveled to the Tournament of the Minds in Edina on January 20th where the 6th grade team earned 2nd place.  Both teams then  competed in the SPRINT tournament in Memphis on January 21st.  Both teams qualified to compete in the afternoon bracket at this tournament and had to play against each other.  The 6th grade ended the season with a 3rd place finish.  Fifth grade team members included Lacey Fisher, Austin Ray, Deyton White, and Rhett Whitlow.  Sixth grade team members included Landon Fisher,    Wesley McGinnis, Aden Shahan, and Avery Zentz.  Special thanks to sponsor Ms. Kincaid for a very successful season and to Austin Ray for helping coach!
