Booth student takes fourth at state Geography Bee

A top four finish at the Georgia National Geographic Bee is a great achievement and proves that one Fayette sixth grader really knows his geography.
Aditya Ronanki of J.C. Booth Middle was among the 100 fourth to eighth grade Geography Bee school champions who competed at Georgia College and State University on April 9.

Aditya proved that he could hold his own by eliminating competitors through the preliminary rounds and then a tiebreaker round to earn one of 10 spots to compete for the championship.

Although he outperformed 90 students to get the championship round and then beat another six to earn a fourth place overall finish, Aditya will not be satisfied until he wins the state championship.

He plans to return to the competition next year with a first place victory as his goal.
