Both the Freshman/Sophomore team (B) and the Junior/Senior team (A) finished 3rd in their respective divisions falling short of Labette County and Girard in the A division and Labette County and Coffeyville in the B division.
Representing the A team was Zoey Ball and Sara Goins. Zoey finished 3rd individually and Sara was 9th. In the B division Daisy Burns finished 2nd overall, while Hannah Williams ranked 6th.
In the Job Interview contest, students must submit a resume and cover letter in advance of the contest, then complete a hand written application, job interview and follow-up letter the day of the competition.
This marks the second year in a row that both the A and B team has finished in the top 3 at the district Job Interview contest. Last year both teams were 2nd.
