St. John’s Lutheran School held its School Geography Bee in January. The competition is part of the National Geographic Bee, sponsored by the National Geographic Society, and is held in all 50 states. The finalists from fifth through eighth grade were, from left, Hunter Bledsoe, Shahub Razavi, Sean Johnson, Justice Faustina, Twyla Borck, Nico D’Angelo, Ben Goller and Jack Carey. Seventh-grader Justice Faustina was this year’s SJL School Champion. He will now take a test to qualify for the California State Geography Bee that will be held this spring.
