OLF Student Competes in State Finals of MATHCOUNTS Competition Series

Heith Shinn, a 6th grader at OLF Elementary, travelled to Madison, MS last month to compete in the 2018 State Finals of the MATHCOUNTS Competition Series.  In February, Shinn won the local 6th grade competition held at USM – Gulf Park and earned the right to compete in the state competition.  Fifteen schools from across the state sent students to Madison to compete for a chance to represent Mississippi in the national competition to be held in Washington, D.C. in May.  While Shinn did not advance to the finals, he enjoyed the competition.
