The Carolina Forest High School “We the People” team competed in Washington, D.C., and social studies teacher J.J. Iagulli said the intensity of the competition “is impossible to put into words.” While the team did not make the national top 10, they think they finished fourth in the Southeast and are awaiting the official scores.
Iagulli said the team took the competition seriously, skipping opportunities to tour the city in order to study, never missing a deadline and keeping up with their homework from other classes. He said one student said it was the greatest experience they have had in high school, and the results do not change all the lessons and skills they learned.
“I am most honored to have taken such a group of kids to D.C.,” Iagulli said. “They have represented our school, community and this state very well.”
