Writin' Wildcats claim Quill crown, help collect School District Cup

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Chatham County Schools ran away with this year’s School District Cup for medium school systems in competition through the North Carolina Association for Scholastic Activities (NCASA). 

The award was presented during NCASA’s annual meeting May 10 at Atkins High School.

Chatham County Schools won the School District Cup with 400 points. The closest challenger was Surry County Schools with 175 points. Harnett County Schools had 125 points. 

NCASA promotes academic excellence among the state’s students through scholastic competitions such as Quiz Bowl — think group “Jeopardy!” — and a test of writing prowess called The Quill. There’s also space for dance ensembles and show choirs, among other categories. 

George Moses Horton Middle School educator Tracy Miller emerged as the NCASA Middle School Scholastic Director of the Year. She steered a team of the school’s students to a state championship in The Quill. 

Horton’s Bradyn Robinson is the NCASA Middle School Principal of the Year, a tip of the cap for his touch toward nurturing a campus where academic student enrichment is thriving.
