The Quiz Bowl team at Bush is proud of their accomplishments this year. (L to R) Ethan Guimbarda, Julian Galaz-Martinez, Daniel Huantes, and Farzaan Kalyom.

Congratulations to the Bush Middle School Quiz Bowl Team for qualifying and participating in the National Quiz Bowl Tournament in Atlanta, Georgia, May 10-11. The members of the team include eighth graders Julian Galaz-Martinez, Farzaan Kaiyom, Ethan Guimbarda, and seventh grader Daniel Huantes. This very successful Quiz Bowl Team was formed at the beginning of this school year. These students have competed in four quiz bowl tournaments this year earning 1st place in two out of the four tournaments.

The overall success of the team is due to the young men’s dedication and desire to further their knowledge in all of their core academic subjects. Many hours of reading, study, review and practice contributes to their successes. The campus gave a heartfelt thank you to Debra Guest for organizing and sponsoring the student’s activities and preparation to compete and to the students' families that have given positive support.
