The Dinwiddie High School Scholastic Bowl Team, an academic
competition group, earned the Region 4B Champion’s trophy on Saturday,
Team co-captains, seniors James Beekwilder and Noah Muskett, praised
the outstanding performances by their teammates senior Parker McFadden, and
sophomores Ryan Wood, Kayla Fischer, and Rileigh Cox. Coach Ms. Jeanne
Minetree and Assistant Coach Mr. Andrew Trowbridge were elated with their
players’ competitive skills and their sportsmanship.
Scholastic Bowl is an official sport recognized by the Virginia High School
League for which students may earn a sports letter. Twelve schools comprise
the Class 4 4B Region, encompassing a broad territory including King George in
the Northern Neck to Culpeper and Louisa in the western part of the state and
several schools in the central Richmond Metro area.
The competition consists of questions from all subject areas with teams of
two teams of four students each using lock-out buzzers to try to be the first
person to answer the question correctly. The game format is similar to Jeopardy.
According to Coach Minetree, all students at Dinwiddie High School are eligible
to join the team.

Wreaths Across America volunteers participated in ceremonies and layed wreaths across the United States on Saturday, December 15 starting at 12:00 p.m. Dinwiddie HS staff, students in collaboration with the National Park Services were integral players in making the ceremony held at Poplar Grove National Cemetery, here in Dinwiddie a success. Members of the DHS choir sang the National Anthem, SFC (Ret) Bob Weaver, DHS ITRT, played Taps, Ms Melissa Von Poks, Asst Principal, DHS layed the ceremonial wreath in honor of those who have served and are serving in the Air Force and MAJ (Ret) Duncan Robinson, SAI, JROTC layed the ceremonial wreath in honor of those that served and are serving in the Merchant Marines. Efforts by the community and the DHS JROTC resulted in double the number of wreaths layed last year. This year 150 wreaths were layed. The goal for next year is at least 200. The process is not over once the wreaths are layed. As they did last year, our DHS FFA will coordinate with the National Parks Services to prepare the wreaths for disposal. This involves removing the red bows and separating the wire from each wreath.
