6/13/22 9:41AM
Congratulations to our 2021-2022 Academic Decathlon team on their ninth national championship title in the U.S. Academic Decathlon. The school invited the community and press to a celebration of the team on Thursday, May 12 in front of the school. The celebration included speeches from coaches and students, CCSA President Myrna Castrejón, elected representatives, and the School's Executive Director Brian Bauer. The theme for this year's competition is one familiar to all students in California – Water: A Most Essential Resource. Nine students competed to bring the school the now expected glory: Zainab Al-Atya, Lily Fairbank-Bermejo, Vivian Le, Vanessa Miller, Kira Pospeshil, Matthew Salcedo, Colby Sapera, Garrett Scott, and Mason Wong. Students competed by taking multiple-choice exams, writing essays, and delivering speeches on a wide variety of subjects such as literature and the arts, science, economics, and more. Our school is very proud of these students as well as their advisers for their dedication and hard work that brings honor to the entire GHC community." Watch video..
