On Monday in Louisville, the Edmonson County Middle School academic team participated in the Governor's Cup. Established in 1985, KAAC (Kentucky Association for Academic Competition) now serves over 20,000 students and nearly 1200 schools at over 400 competitions each year.
Eighth grader Brayden Johnson, son of Brad and Jodi Johnson of Bee Spring, placed 8th in the entire state in the Language Arts category, and was awarded a trophy and a medallion by Governor Andy Beshear.
Over 130 students tested in the competition today. Johnson did not only place in the state, but also placed 1st in the district and 2nd in region to qualify as a state finalist.
