Roach Student Headed for National History Bee

Mar 06, 2015

Jathin Desan of Roach Middle School is heading to the National History Bee for a second time after qualifying at the regional history bee in Dallas. The national competition will be held in Kentucky in May.

Jathin, a sixth grade student, has always had a love of history and his parents enrolled him in the history bee while he was a student at Ashley. He qualified for the national contest as an elementary student and came in ranked 9th in the nation last year.

The competition covers world history from ancient civilizations to recent events. The bee also has several tough elimination rounds that participants must get through to be selected to move forward.

Jathin’s parents enrolled him in the program through www.nationalhistorybee.com.
