Central High: two-timer UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, May 19, 2008 at 3:15 PM

Word's just in that the Little Rock Central High School team has repeated as national champion in the Federal Reserve Bank's Fed Challenge, in which teams of high school students handle tough questions on economcs and monetary policy.

It ain't football, I know.

But it's worth a $10,000 scholarship for the school and $6,000 for each of the team members. CORRECTION: Money was paid last year. Citibank, sponsor of the awards, withdrew its support this year because of its own money troubles. Still.

UPDATE: Coincidentally, Newsweek, is out with a new edition of its top high schools list, a ranking derived from a formula based on the number of Advanced Placement or similar tests taken at a high school. Of the 1,358 schools ranked, Central is tops among the eight schools in Arkansas making the list, at 36th in the country.

Others on the list; Little Rock Mills, 111; Bentonville, 486; Fayetteville, 536; Fort Smith Southside, 625; Rogers, 1,243, and Arkansas School for Math and Science, 1,355.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
