BPS team competes at Academic Bowl for Deaf students

A team of students from several Boston Public Schools recently competed in the Gallaudet University Northeast Regional Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students, and brought home the Sportsmanship Award. The competition, held this year at the Rochester School for the Deaf in Rochester, NY, tests students on general knowledge and quick recall, with questions being drawn from history, literature, science, the arts, deaf culture, and current events.
The BPS team is coached by teachers from the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, and includes players from Horace Mann, as well as the Boston Arts Academy and Brook Farm Business & Service Career Academy. Pictured here, (back row, left to right) students Nneamaka Mordi, Natalie Bellevue, Ketya Destin, Josephine Yu, and Taylor Oliveira; (front row) John Wilcox, Head Coach and Diane Simon, Assistant Coach.
