School: Blue Springs, 2008
College: Will absolutely be MU
Future plans: Major in journalism, double minor in film and history. I want to be an entertainment journalist and live in a big city somewhere. Also, during college, I want to be an RA at Missouri Scholars Academy and Drury Leadership Academy.
Hobbies: reading, watching way too much television, watching old movies, learning about Polish culture, listening to country and alternative rock, finding out anything and everything about Jimmy Stewart.
Blue Springs HS 08
as of now, planning on going to University of Nebraska- Lincoln, majoring in actuarial sciences
i work at ibex climbing gym in Blue Springs
i like to climb, play violin, subtly brag about my ACT score and class rank, and solve math problems and sudoku puzzles.
i laugh at catty, over-dramatic, whiny, petulant know-it-all girls.
i laugh harder at the boys w/ that description.
maple story is the bane of my existence.
I play for Blue Springs High School. I will graduate in 2008.
I don't know where I want to go to college; I'm in the process of narrowing it down. I'm considering Drake University, Northwestern University, and Knox College.
I want to double major in secondary education and European History (so I can teach high school history).
My other hobbies are pretty random. I'm in Hope Society, Youth Core, Spanish Club (when I feel like it), Hi-Step, and I'd be in FTA if I could get ahold of Mrs. Wheeler . . . I like reading, writing, doodling, making terrible puns, my friends, Sudoku, arguing about religion and politics, speaking disjointed Spanish, and rambling about pointless things like my hobbies.
College: Carleton College, Class of 2013

hobbies: fuzbol (the kind you play outside!), ultimate football,volleyball, dancing, listening to muzic, watching anime on youtube and crunchyroll, reading and shopping (oh yea...)
reason why i'm here:
B) i'm just so cool!
Well, thank you very much. Wow, that makes me feel good that I'm being recognized by people.I don't know where to post this, but I will also add that Michael is probably the best player in the entire Truman program this year (although his coaches are doing the right thing keeping him on JV).
I played quiz bowl for Bergen Academy of New Jersey, graduating in 2003.
I'm currently player/co-tournament director for Wash U, graduating in 2007.
After that, I'm hoping I have a job, and if at some point I'm at grad school, I hope I have time to continue this thing.
Eureka High, Class of '09.
I was sort of conned into QuizBowl by a friend, and I'm stuck on it now! We have a Varsity team with two sophomores (me and another), 1 junior, and 1 senior (who, to be honest, isn't quite good, but knows things that we don't).
Future Plans: I've got a full ride to the Cardboard Box Institute. I'll be studying Cardboard Construction at the Maytag Campus in Downtown St. Louis.
By day, I work as a software engineer for a contractor for NASA Goddard. By night, my wife and I run Academic Initiative, our small quiz bowl business.

went to high school in chatham, IL (glenwood HS) - class of 2005
now i'm at truman, a sophomore, linguistics major with a russian minor.
class of 2009 for college.
Future plans are undecided beyond I want to go to NWMSU for at least one year, possibly - I used to want to be a college history professor but now I'm not so sure about wanting to go into teaching. Probable majors are anything with science or computers.
As for hobbies, they include reading (nearly anything, but especially encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference books)(and Wikipedia), playing Xbox 360, Xbox, and computer games, and just browsing the Internet (again, mostly Wikipedia or other informational sites). RuneScape is fun too.

Park Hill High School (Kansas City) Class of 2008
My current intention is to enter William Jewell College in 2008 as an Oxbridge Institutions and Policy Major, but we'll see.
Most of my time is spent with the PH Debate Team, or elsewhere.
I've been lurking in the outfield for a while now, but thought I'd join in the fun, since I've enjoy the reading.
I'm Chris Wonderly, proud alumnus of the North Kansas City High School quiz bowl team. I was there between 1995-99, overlapping two years with Mr. Mike Wehrman and all four years with Mr. Andy Wehrman. Good times.
Went on to college at the U. of Missouri-Columbia where I participated in college quiz bowl for a year and a half, but only went to one tournament. The MU team wasn't terribly "dedicated" during the years I was involved, though they did have lots of fun, which made it quite enjoyable. Bachelor of Journalism (Strategic Communications) and Bachelor of Science (Parks, Recreation & Tourism) from Mizzou, and now I work for the National Park Service.
Good times, but reading this board, I feel really old!
Keep up the good work!
I'm Rachel Bridges!
I am a Senior at Fordland High School.
I have been on the A-team since I was a sophomore, but this is my first year starting Varsity.
I am the team's Literature Specialist (if you couldn't tell by my username).
Users Ford08, wingman, and ELADAMO89 are my good friends and teammates Chad, Nathan, and Adam, respectively.
Bert is our AWESOME coach.
I love SLEEPING, reading, playing video games (faves are guitar hero, god of war, resident evil 4, silent hill, and the metal gear solids.), listening to music, and kicking butt in a-team competitions.
I am going to MSU next fall.
Winnetonka High School
Not sure where I'm going to college, but I know I'm goin' into pre-med.
I've been on the varsity team since my freshman year in the spring of 2005 and have been starting since the fall of 2005. I am my team's lit and social studies specialist. I've also been the captain since the fall of 2006.
I'm here to learn more about college tournaments in Missouri. I plan to put together a quizbowl club here and would like to field teams for future tourneys.
Name: Charles Jesse Moshe Ben Amos Dees
High School: Maur Hill Mount Academy for one semester, then North Kansas City, class of 2008.
College: Currently enrolled to begin at the University of Missouri-Columbia, will begin work on a microbiology major after getting some gen.ed. requirements done this semester.
Future Plans: helping get a quizbowl team off the ground at Mizzou, have some fun in college, and get a good paying job.
Hobbies: reading, driving, going to the beach, making money, and hanging out with my friends.
Name: Alex Dzurick
High School: South Callaway HS (Mokane, MO), class of 2008. SCHS was C3D4 for quiz bowl.
College: Mizzou. Working on a linguistics major, with possible double majors and/or minors in Film Studies, Anthropology, or Communication. I'm also a member of Marching Mizzou's clarinet section and an alternate in the Black and Gold Spirit Band. I'm working with Charlie to get the quiz bowl team off the ground here.
I'm Dakota Ioanis. Class of 2009 Truman High School. Other than Scholars I am also a member of my schools debate team and marching band. I also do senior mentoring at Truman where we help out the little freshmen. As for colleges I have my choices down to 3, maybe 4 (Columbia University, WashU, Mizzou and thinking about applying to Dartmouth [sometimes it helps to be a minority, otherwise I wouldn't have a chance at all in getting into those kinds of schools save mizzou]) After college I'm not sure what I want to do. For my major I was thinking something like political science or perhaps geography....
Politics are a passion for me, which is one of the reasons I have had debate for 4 years. I really do like to travel however cheesy that sounds. I love sports and I am a huge mizzou fan. For the most part I follow football pretty good, both college and NFL, and some baseball and basketball. (no nascar because that's not a sport. Any monkey can make a left turn in a car for like 1,000 times in 3 hours. I'm sorry but it's true)
Yes I'm one quarter native american (kinda why I was named Dakota in the first place....) My grandpa was full blood chippewa, born and raised on an reservation up in Minnesota or North Dakota I think. Anyway I have an indian census number, which is what I think one calls it, which gives me my "number" (a lot like an social security number I believe) and the name of my tribe that I belong to on a little card. I have never been to any pow wows or whatever indians do when they get together or met anyone from my tribe other than my mom and uncles. I do have that number and everything is kosher and legal. This has opened a lot of doors for me that I thought would never happen for me. I'm not the top of my class but I do have decent grades and my ACT score is just a few points above the national average. So it helps
