Principal Al LeRoy and Geography Bee winner Christopher Duran
Recently, as part of the school’s Family Focus parent night, Seneca Middle School crowned their school winner of the National Geographic Bee. Prior to that evening, classroom rounds had narrowed the field to two students from each grade level. At the schoolwide competition the questions grew increasingly difficult and spanned areas far and wide, but the six competing students showed their impressive knowledge with their responses. In the end, seventh grader Christopher Duran bested his opponents in the best of seven rounds competition. He will now complete a written test in order to move forward to the state-level bee and hopefully move onward to Washington, DC to the final rounds of the National Geographic Bee. The other five Seneca Middle School schoolwide contestants were sixth graders Noah Hulsey and Chandler Rivenbark, seventh grader Cooper Patterson and eighth graders Joseph Johnston and Scott Sullivan.
