Jacobs High School teacher Jennifer Christian is elated at her school’s students’ performance at the Worldwide Youth Science and Engineering state competition.
She shares the following:
I wanted to let you know the results of our WYSE state competition held yesterday at U of I.
5 of the 6 students medaled within the top 6 places of state ranking! I am sending a picture from the competition as well.
Their names as well as their awards are as follows:
It was an amazing year for the WYSE team.
We’ve never had so many students advance to the state level.
Even when 4 or 5 students advanced to state, the most medals ever earned was two in any given year.
The highest placement ever achieved was 4th place, once years ago, and once last year.
This year, we have two 4th place winners.
The highest English score, until this year, was 5th place, making Madelyn the highest scoring English student in Jacobs history that we can find in all the posted results.
Also, thanks to everyone who has supported our WYSE academic team in helping us achieve success!
