Two members of the 1997-'98 Quiz Bowl Team have recently won national honors. According to the "Catholic Islander" newspaper of October, 1997, "Tamisha Navarro and Sabrina Carr, students at St. Joseph High School, St. Croix, have been named semifinalists in this year's National Achievement Scholarship Program.

This is the second year in a row St. Joseph's students have taken top places in this national scholastic competition; last year, Khalfani Garcia and Nehemiah Prince were among the top scorers in the nation.

The Achievement Program is a privately financed, annual competition for recognition and scholarships that is open to high school students who are Black Americans. The competition is conducted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation.

The 1,500 students who qualify as semifinalists are the only students who have an opportunity to advance in the competition for Achievement Scholarship Awards."

The 1997-98 school year began on August 18 with faculty meetings and preparations. Classes begin on August 25. Come back and visit this site often and watch the real learning continue to develop.
