LRCH students “Psych” Out the Competition at AP Psychology Quiz Bowl


More than 60 students from three LRSD high schools vied for bragging rights at the first annual AP Psychology Quiz Bowl, hosted by McClellan High School on May 4, 2013. Central High School team members Will Richardson, BeiBei Dong, Melinda Liu, and Evan Young emerged as the winning team. The competition, held two days before the AP Psychology exam is administered, served as an excellent review for all the participants.


Teachers Katherine Cortinez and Chris Thomas from Central, Carla Jurgensmeyer from Parkview, and Margaret Reed from McClellan worked together to organize the event. District Engagement Specialists Kamesha Lindsey and Laura Beth Arnold also contributed to the event’s success. State Representative Fredrick Love and Interim Superintendent Marvin Burton provided gift cards and breakfast.   


All of the district’s AP Psychology teachers are looking forward to making the competition an annual event.
