Math and Science Minds

Last week, Mississippi College held its annual Math and Science Tournament, in which more than 1,000 Mississippi high school students take tests to compete for “bragging rights,” as well as for scholarships. Talented students completed 50-minute written exams in the fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, math, and physics. All those who place in the top 20 percent on each test are offered scholarships.

Hillcrest sent a team of the following students: JoJo Moss, Jared Bewley, Sarah Grace Brownlee, Jazmyn Ellis, Gage Mitchell, Katelynn Phillips, Kaylyn Turner, Ashley Myers, Trinity Powell, Leah Wells, and Aliza Williams. Congratulations to senior JoJo Moss; he scored in the top 20 percent on the math and chemistry tests and has been offered a $2,000 scholarship to Mississippi College!
