Shapleigh School sixth grader Conor McPherson took top honors for the second straight year in the school-wide National Geographic Geography Bee, held on Wednesday January 25. McPherson edged out nine other Shapleigh students - two each in grades 4-8 - to earn top honors.

Eighth grader Brooke Lankford finished in second place. Other participants were: eighth grader Gunnar Palm, seventh graders Emma Webb and Owen Young, sixth grader Aram Brewer, fifth graders Caroline Carven and Kyree Lee, and fourth graders TJ Anderson and Myles Seckler.

McPherson now qualifies for the state Geography Bee, to be held March 31.
