Union Hall

The fourth and fifth grade students at Union Hall Elementary School participated in the National Geographic Bee on Dec. 12. Students were questioned using material prepared by the National Geographic Society, and participants were narrowed down to a set of finalists. Fifth grader Raleigh Henderson was as the first place winner for the school; fourth grader Neal Barker finished second and third place recognition was earned by fourth grader Destinee Parsons. The following students received participation awards: Loren Witcher, Brooklyn Rigney, Jacie Scearce, Lilly Furr, Mikayla Mally, Javion Webb, Abigail Custer, Paityn Williams, and Au’Traiah Harris. Each school winner will now take an online test to determine the top 100 scores across the state. Those finalists will compete in the state bee.
