Clarksville Academy Won at State Chemistry Olympiad

The Clarksville Academy High School Chemistry Team, coached by Coach Jennifer Moore came in strong at the State Chemistry Olympiad Competition, held at Tennessee Technological University, March 2, 2018. The CA Chemistry team consists of Juniors Tucker Finch, Christy Zheng, Tabitha Lee, and Jenny Li.

Tabitha Lee was among the top 10 ranking students at this Tennessee Local Section competition, as a result, she will represent Tennessee to participate in the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad Exam, in April 2018. The rest of the team also had very strong showings. Christy Zheng was ranked the 11th.

The U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad is a prestigious, multi-tiered chemistry competition held by the American Chemical Society.

We are proud of all the students who competed last week! Wonderful job to these students!
