Trevor Lerum, an 8th grade student at DeForest Area Middle School, competed at the April 6 National Geographic Geo Bee, held at the American Center in Madison.
Trevor was one of over one hundred middle school students from around the state of Wisconsin to compete for an opportunity to go to the national competition in Washington D.C. next month. While Trevor did not make it to the finals, he did extremely well in the preliminary round, getting 7 out of 8 questions correct.
“I have worked the Bee for the past 8 years or so and this year the questions were tough,” said high school social studies teacher, Kristin Pachal. “DASD should be proud of him!” Joe Pachal, a 7th Grade Social Studies teacher, also helped at the April 6th Geographic Geo Bee.
