The Latter-day Sentinel featured two stand-out high school students this week.
Zander White and Mark Crossen are part of the varsity Knowledge Bowl team at Central Valley High School and helped bring home the 4A Washington state championships in March. The title was the first of its kind in school history.
The Sentinel reported that White, a member of the Belle Terre Ward in the Spokane East Stake, said winning the state crown represented a symbolic victory for CVHS.
“For me it's all about bringing honor to my school,” he said in the article. “People are taking notice of CV's athletic achievements at the regional and state levels and it certainly makes a statement about our academics as well to show that CV, an Eastside school, can compete with the Westside schools' brightest, children of university professors and Microsoft executives, and win.”
For Crossen, a member of the Sullivan Ward in the Spokane Valley Stake, the historic victory was rewarding but paled in comparison to the philosophy discussions on bus trips and table tennis competitions after each tournament.
