Cole, 7th grader at Cascade Christian Middle School, received a lot of attention the past couple days as the word got out that he is one of the top 100 4th-8th grade students who qualified to compete at the state level of the National Geographic State Geography Bee! He will be attending the State competition in early April at the Western Oregon University campus in Monmouth. The winner of the State Geo Bee will represent Oregon in Washington DC at the national competition.

Cole has been preparing for the competition by studying on National Geographic apps, paying attention in Miss Swope’s Geography class, and as he participates on the middle school Brain Bowl team.

Join us in congratulation Cole on his accomplishments thus far and we pray for a great experience at the next level!
