26 Reeds Spring students showed that they are as creative as any kids around the world. They recently participated in the Destination Imagination Global Finals, held in Knoxville, Tennessee.
Destination Imagination helps young people build lifelong skills in creative and critical thinking, teamwork, time management, and problem-solving. Teams create unique solutions to challenges they are given. More than 1,400 teams from 19 countries competed.
Five Reeds Spring School District teams qualified for Global Finals by placing first or second at the state tournament.
At Global Finals, the Reeds Spring High School team of Pete Harmon, Rebekah Settles, Justin Bible, Brady Hefner, and Marshall Megellas earned 21st place in the Senior Level Scientific Challenge.
The RSHS team of Shelby Thompson, Michael Shepard, Donnie Hunt, Kane Parker, Riley Blair, and Tommy Diem finished 21st in the Senior Level Technical Challenge.
The Reeds Spring Middle School team of Piper Megellas, Anna Caravella, Trinity Boyd, Madylin Irvin, Elizabeth Murray, and Lily Bolt took 23rd place in the Middle Level Fine Arts Challenge.

District employees Janna Elfrink, Ryan Rhodes, Marc Livell, and Robin Verheyen accompanied the students on the trip, which would not have been possible without the substantial support of several area businesses and community members. The Reeds Spring Destination Imagination teams would like to thank all of their generous sponsors!
