Northwest hosts junior high school math competition

The Mississippi Council of Teachers of Mathematics Junior High Math Competition was held recently on the Senatobia campus of Northwest Mississippi Community College. On March 2, students from surrounding district schools traveled to the campus for testing. Northwest math instructors Susan Leake and Jennifer Hale coordinated the event.

Seventh grade winners were Samuel Quon of Northpoint Christian School, first place, and Landon Thompson of Southaven Middle School, second place. Eighth grade winners were Elizabeth Wadsworth, first place and Jeffrey Chen, second place. Wadsworth and Chen are both students at Northpoint.

According to Charlotte Alexander, division director of mathematics, the students were first tested at their individual schools, and the four top scorers from 7th and 8th grades were sent to Northwest for the district level test.

“We are always excited to have representatives from the area junior high schools compete in the district level competition here at Northwest. The teachers who train these young math scholars are to be commended for a job well done,” Alexander said.
