Thurston student wins national math award

Jordan Clevenger, who will be a senior at Thurston High School in September, won a bronze medal in the mathematics category at the 29th annual Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics national competition, held in Washington, D.C., earlier this month.

He was one of six area students whose gold medals in the local competition last March qualified them for the national contest.

The ACT-SO competition is sponsored primarily by the NAACP.

Briggs eighth-grader will compete in Florida

Rena Fowler, an eighth-grader at Briggs Middle School, is one of four Oregon athletes scheduled to compete in this week's 2006 National Junior Disability Championships in Tampa, Fla.

Fowler was the national champion of shot put and discus for her age group in the 2004 competition.

The competition is the largest sporting event for junior wheelchair athletes.

This year it will host more than 250 athletes, between the ages of 7 and 21, from all over the world.
