HS Student Participates in Pokemon Competition
For one week in August, Vince Krekeler (9th grade) will be traveling to Boston, Massachusetts to participate in the Pokemon World Championship.
Krekeler not only qualified for the championship competition, but he also ranked in the top 16 group in all of the United States and Canada and received a full paid trip to participate in this event.
In the past he has won thousands of dollars in scholarships and is aiming to do so again this year. He will be playing against competitors from all over the world including Russia, Brazil, South Africa and Japan.
This competition allows the students to network with peers, build technical skills, and utilize other various abilities that they have developed during their education, to help them compete for the week.
