Vanden High School will respresent Solano County at the California Academic Decathlon in Sacramento next month.
The school’s decathlon team won the post during last weekend’s 2015 North Bay Regional Academic Decathlon.
In addition to Vanden, Casa Grande High School will represent Sonoma County, St. Helena High School will represent Napa County, and River City High School will represent Yolo County at the state competition on March 19.
The second and final day of the North Bay Regional Academic Decathlon was held on February 7 at Solano Community College in Suisun. While addressing students and families, Solano County Superintendent of Schools Jay Speck said, “Communication, critical thinking, and collaboration have always been important skills and are critical to the success of our youth. Through hard work and dedication, the students in this competition have developed skills that will last them a lifetime.”
