Palmer Middle School Wins First Place at the Kennesaw Teen Center Black History Bowl Championship Series

Palmer Middle School Wins First Place at the Kennesaw Teen Center Black History Bowl Championship Series on February 6, 2021.

McClure Middle comes in Third behind Mount Paran Christian School.

Forty middle schools from the surrounding area competed in the Black History Bowl Championship Series this past month.  The Black History Bowl is a competitive educational event for middle school students.  The students competed by answering a variety of black history-related questions in science, the arts, education, sports, entertainment, civil rights and politics in a fast-paced game show style format.

Congratulations to Jacob Tumlin, Palmer Middle School Academic Blow Advisor, and his team for winning the Black History Bowl Championship Series on February 6, 2021.  Tumlin shared his excitement with the community saying “Palmer is very proud of our Academic Bowl team.  Each of these students committed to hours of studying and competition outside of their rigorous coursework.  Led by Chuka Onyimah, all six participants executed our plan with precision; everyone played an important role in our victory.”

Onyimah, a Palmer Seventh Grader has this to say about the experience: “I loved the Black History Bowl; it was a fun experience that enriched my knowledge of the many people of color who came before me.  Black history is too big to fit into one month; studying it allows us to not only learn from the past, but also press on to a brighter future.”
