FROM THOMAS JEFFERSON INDEPENDENT DAY SCHOOL

Congratulations to 8th Grader Lewis Weller (with Academic Dean Steven McCollum in photo) on his selection to compete in the Missouri National Geographic Bee. After winning TJ’s Geography Bee in December, Lewis took a qualifying written test. The National Geographic Society selected the top 100 scorers in the state and they were entered in the Missouri contest scheduled for April 4 in Moberly, Mo. If Lewis wins the state bee, he will receive cash and prizes, and will represent Missouri in the National Geographic Bee in Washington, D.C., May 19-22. The national winner will receive a $50,000 college scholarship and other prizes.
