Purdy takes second in District Scholar Bowl
May 16, 2018
The Purdy High School Academic Team recently placed second in the 2018 Class 2 District Scholar Bowl, with members Mikey Schad and Hannah Reid finishing in the top five individual scorers, Schad in third and Reid in fourth. The Purdy High School Academic Team is coached by Mrs. Lisa Reid, who will be teaching in Cassville next year. Senior PHS Academic Team member Mikey Schad noted of her coach, “Being on the Academic Team and having Mrs. Reid as a coach was one of the best parts of my four years in high school. Not only was she a great coach, but she was the best science teacher, and all her classes were my favorites. As I graduate high school, Mrs. Reid, her classes, and the fun times on the Academic Team will be a few of the things I’ll miss.” Senior member Jose Perez added, “We might not remember everything that Mrs. Reid taught us, but we will remember how much she cared about us and how special she made us feel.” The team is pictured above, from left to right: Jose Perez, Elizabeth Hoffman, Bayleigh Schad, Mikey Schad, Hannah Reid, Connie Lee, Sean Thomas, Drew Graham, Randy Schad and coach Lisa Reid.
