Eaglebrook Students Place in Regional International Geography Bee
Ten Eaglebrook students attended the Regional Level of the International Geography Bee in Nashua, New Hampshire earlier in April. Of those students, Jeremy F. ’24, Pato E. ’24, and Fred T. ’24 placed to qualify for the national finals. Before arriving in Nashua, students had to place at the school level.
When asked for her thoughts on the students’ performance at the Bee, Advisor Yuan-Hsiu Lien said: “Not only did they excel in the competition itself, but they also demonstrated impressive levels of independence, helpfulness, and maturity throughout the entire trip. Their ability to interact with each other with a great sense of humor and ability to socialize with other competitors was noteworthy, and they were very supportive of each other throughout the competition. It was heartening to see how they cheered and congratulated each other.”
“I thought I could be more eager to answer questions but I still had fun,” said Tomas T. ’24. Jose Miguel G. ’25 said: “It was a really fun competition and I learned so much.”
