Fourth and fifth graders from Riverside Intermediate recently showcased their intellectual abilities to the max, surpassing other local schools, churches and youth groups to take the championship in the second annual Black History Bowl hosted by the Kennesaw Teen Center.
After taking the preliminary round, the team went head-to-head for the championship against North Cobb Christian School, answering a variety of questions and displaying their deep awareness of the essential role African Americans have played in the history of our country. Students had to be fast on the buzzer to answer questions related to science, the arts, education, sports entertainment, civil rights, and politics.
Riverside Intermediate staff members Latasha Bell and Erin Tillman coached the team, while Principal Dr. Barbara Swinney and other staff members supported and cheered them on to victory.
Fourth and fifth graders Erick Gutierrez, Dawnella Ezeugo, Jacob Thomas, Jenny Solis, Turquoise, and Nyasia comprised the Riverside Intermediate team, celebrating the wonderful contributions made by African Americans in the history of our country. Congratulations on your proud win, scholars!
