A Cherokee County School District student placed in national academic competitions this summer!
Creekview High School rising ninth-grader Abigail Moore this past school year qualified at regional contests for the International Academic Competition’s (IAC) Humanities, National (World) History, U.S. History and general Academic Bees.
During the IAC Nationals held in Orlando last month, Abigail advanced to the quarterfinals of the National History Bee and the semifinals of the U.S. History and Academic Bees. She also placed 13th in the nation during the competition on the IAC’s physical science test; her eighth-grade science teacher at Creekland MS last school year was Derek Tobin.
“Congratulations to Abigail for representing her school and our school district with excellence,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “We’re proud of all your successes and look forward to seeing you continue academic competitions at Creekview. Thank you to Mr. Tobin and all of the teachers who have guided you on your path.”
IAC organizes academic competitions for primary and secondary students in more than 50 countries around the world with a mission of “rewarding academic excellence by bringing innovative, stimulating, fair, and relevant competition opportunities to students around the world.”
Abigail previously won third place in IAC’s national Humanities Bee in 2021. She also competed last school year as a member of Creekland’s academic bowl team, CCSD’s 2021-22 Middle School Academic Bowl winner, and qualified with the team and individually to compete in the National Academic Quiz Tournament.
