Whittier Mathcounts team going to Nationals
The Whittier Middle School Mathcounts team, coached by Katherine Brooks (assisted by Harold Brooks) won the state championship last weekend! Katherine is a pre-engineering teacher at Whittier Middle School, and both Katherine and Harold have volunteered their time to help the kids prepare for the competition over the last three years. The team was also honored for being “the most improved.”
Two students from the Whittier team, and two from Jenks Middle School in Jenks, OK will represent Oklahoma at Nationals in Orlando, FL on May 9. Katherine will coach the Oklahoma team, and Harold will help.

Congratulations and good luck!
