Hannibal High School Finance Team returns after impressive run
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -
Hannibal High School's Finance team is among the best in the country. It placed second in the nation in the National Finance Challenge.
The high school represented the state of Missouri after placing first in the statewide competition. The team consisted of four students taking online tests and then advancing to a quiz bowl. Finance teacher Kurt Haner says it's quite an accomplishment, but he's already looking towards next year.
"I'm very happy. And we're already thinking about trying to make it to nationals for next year and going after first place instead of second," he said.
To make this even more impressive, the High School started this finance team just five years ago.
