Post MOQBA public statement regarding John Scognamiglio
The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance has recently learned that one of its members, John Scognamiglio, was charged with a sexual offense against a minor in March 2009 and subsequently pled guilty in May 2010. Upon discovery of these actions, and after a short investigation, members voted to condemn Mr. Scognamiglio's actions and permanently expel him from the organization.

At the time the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance was founded, Mr. Scognamiglio was elected as an officer of the organization and was an assistant coach for a high school quizbowl team. However, he was impeached in November 2009 and placed on inactive member status due to perpetual lack of involvement in the organization. This latest action by members removes him from membership entirely. The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance strongly condemns Mr. Scognamiglio's actions and as such will not allow him to be involved with or to attend any event it sponsors in the future.

Each member of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance is committed to promoting the expansion of high-quality quizbowl in the state of Missouri while maintaining the utmost in professionalism and integrity. Any questions regarding this matter should be directed to Jeffrey Hill, Missouri Quizbowl Alliance President, at moqba@moqba.org.

A shame such an action had to be taken. A greater shame that a one-time teammate of mine has betrayed the trust of his community.
