Global Education

Congratulations to the Academic WorldQuest winning team: Indian Hill High School. The school has been the three-time reigning champions of the competition. They’ll be headed to Washington D.C. to compete in the national competition and the team will be at the Council’s One World Gala & Global Trivia Competition. The students and teachers will be returning to the gala and are hoping to defend their title as the One World Gala champions and to prove once again their global wits against the community and business members!
