Congratulations to Joey Storey, Matt Hall, Cameron Guy, and Denny Yang for earning 1st place at the ESSPA Academic Challenge competition, hosted by West Mifflin HS on Thursday, November 15th. This is the 2nd year in a row we earned 1st place! The team faced challenging problems and trivia in the areas of math, science, history and general knowledge. Ben Meshanko, Tad Horomanski, Abby Secrist, Aral Muftuoglu, and Sam Alexander took the 2nd place spot by less than half a point! Denny Yang earned a 2nd place individual award and Tad Horomanski successfully defended his 1st place individual award two years in a row. A huge thank you to all the great teachers who prepared these students. This validates how strong our curriculum and instruction is here at Gateway HS. Please be sure to congratulate these students on a job well done! Next up...tryouts for the PA Academic State Championships! The consortium, Eastern Suburbs Special Programs Association (ESSPA), provides enrichment and extended educational opportunities to students in the eastern suburbs and consists of surrounding school districts in Allegheny and Westmoreland County.
