A Cherokee County School District student placed in the top three in the National Humanities Bee!
Creekland Middle School seventh-grader Abigail Moore won third place at the national competition, which was held virtually for this school year. The academic bowl-style event tests middle and elementary school students’ knowledge in literature, art history and technique, music history and theory, dance, film, religion, mythology, and philosophy.
Abigail twice qualified for the National competition by finishing first and third in two consecutive tournaments. She is an outstanding student, who excels in all of her classes and has expanded her humanities knowledge not only through English and social studies classes, but also through electives in French and art … and plenty of reading!
The Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools will congratulate Abigail with a virtual recognition during the School Board’s March meeting.
“We’re so proud of Abigail for her dedication to furthering her knowledge and for earning this National honor. We know this love of learning will serve her well in her future studies and successes,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “While so much of our conversation about education today focuses on STEM, we must continue to strongly value literature, languages, history and the arts. This knowledge expands our minds, connects us to our past and the world around us today and enriches our lives.”
