Pass Christian Middle School students began 2016 with a challenging competition to see who would win the honor to represent their school in the Mississippi National Geographic Bee. After grade level competitions, the top ten students competed on January 14, 2016 for the school championship. Congratulations to seventh grader Kyle Foretich, who won the title of 2016 PCMS National Geographic Bee Champion and an opportunity to win a $50,000 college scholarship at the national level. The school-level National Geographic Bee, at which students answered oral and written questions on geography, was the first round in the 28th annual National Geographic Bee. Sponsors of the school contest were PCMS social studies teachers Charlene Stephens, Danielle Bueno, and Ryan Rockholt.
We would also like to congratulate the top ten finalists for the PCMS National Geographic Bee.
