Joyce Rose, former WRHS counselor, has had a long involvement with the Quiz Bowl program, both locally and on the state level. She noted that during the state Quiz Bowl finals, which aired Saturday on AETN, several area residents were honored.

"They had a section featuring second generation Quiz Bowl players - Quiz Bowl parents whose children are now on Quiz Bowl teams. Three of the four featured were from Walnut Ridge: Amanda (Milligan) Richey and daughter, Miranda; Cathy (Cooper) Coker and son, Andrew; and George Jared and children, Austin and Megan.

"... I just found it really interesting, even though Cathy was the only one I had on a team. Amanda was competition as she played for Hoxie. I think George was on an Izard County team, so we probably saw him at tournaments. AETN came to Walnut Ridge and filmed them and then they were featured today (Saturday) ... QB is in its 28th year, so those second generation students are coming around."
