Congratulations are due to GJHS Academic Team

The Grand Junction High School Academic Team has made a regular habit, over the past decade and a half, of proving its mettle at regional, state and national competitions that test the participants’ knowledge on a variety of scholastic subjects.

But this year marks the team’s best showing to date in the National Tournament of Academic Excellence held in Orlando, Fla. The Tiger team finished third in the nationwide competition.

What’s more, while the Grand Junction team was made up entirely of students from Grand Junction High School, it competed against many state teams made up of academic all stars from a variety of public and private high schools.

Congratulations to team members Coady Shawcroft, Eric List, Hamilton Reed, Michael Gebhard and Patrick Thornton. And a special kudos to team member Sean Silva, a junior, who was named an All American during the competition.

And, of course, congratulations as well to coach Lorena Thompson for doing such a great job of preparing the Grand Junction team.
