The 23rd Olympic Winter Games are underway in Pyeongchang, South Korea, with some outstanding competition so far. But let’s leave snowboarding to Chloe Kim and figure skating to Mirai Nagasu; in which events would Honors students compete if the Olympic Games were held right here at Meredith?
*cue Olympic march*
The race to the expression board; who can publicize their club or organization first?
Which volunteer can sign up the most people to buy the $3 Honors t-shirts?? It could be you…sign up to help at http://bit.ly/2FgnJGE 🙂
The 200-yard sprint…from BDH to 2nd Joyner two minutes before your class starts; sound familiar?
Cross-country golf-carting, something in which the Meredith staff would likely win gold!
Bowling: surprisingly not an official Olympic sport, and a very popular course at Meredith.
The traditional biathlon is skiing and pea-shooting, but at Meredith, a student does a lap around the library, then runs inside to print her 13-page lab notebook before microbiology.
What do you think? Should we call the International Olympic Committee?? First we’ll need some adjudicators, and I hope Meredith Honors athletes are up to the task…Erica Occena? Ansley Harris? Julia Allsbrook? Hit me up.
