Alexander Sessock, a sixth-grade student at MMI Preparatory School, won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee. Sessock is the son of Jennifer and James Denion, Freeland, and the late John Sessock. The school-level bee, where students answered oral and written questions on geography, was the first round in the 25th annual National Geographic Bee. Sessock competed against eight other students. He will now take a written test for a chance to compete in the state bee on April 5. The National Geographic Society will provide an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for state champions and teacher-escorts to participate in the national championship on May 22. The first-place national winner will receive a $25,000 college scholarship, a lifetime membership in the National Geographic Society and a trip to the Galapagos Islands.

Madison Cramer, a fifth-grade student at GNA Elementary Center, Nanticoke, was selected as the October Student of the Month. The program is designed to promote and reward good citizenship. Local vendors provide prizes to each student monthly.
