WHES student places 11th in state Geo Bee

On March 27, Parker Lowney, a student in Brandon Young’s sixth-grade class at West Homer Elementary School, earned 11th place in the state-level competition of the National Geographic Bee. The first step in qualifying for the state competition was winning at the school level, something Parker did earlier this school year. National Geographic Society prepares materials to help the thousands of students in grades four through eight who participate each year.
