2015 WKCTC Presidents Cup Academic Bowl Winners

Nine regional high schools competed in the 2015 Presidents Cup Academic Bowl held at West Kentucky Community and Technical College on January 7.

Madisonville-North Hopkins took home the top prize with Paducah Tilghman and Calloway County winning second and third place trophies, respectively.

Other participating high schools were Cairo, Crittenden County, Graves County, Marshall County, McCracken County and St. Mary.

I am thrilled to be able to participate in this competition in a professional academic environment. This setting prepares my team for the challenges we will face in the road ahead, both at the Governors Cup and at college next fall, said Luke King, Madisonville-North Hopkins team captain.

WKCTC faculty and staff moderated the competition, which consisted of individual written assessments in mathematics, science, social studies, language arts and arts/humanities and three-team quick recall matches.

Arts/Humanities Hannah Newberry, McCracken County
