ODU FACULTY TAKE TOP HONORS IN WORLDQUEST GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE COMPETITION

Although the competition was keener than ever, two Old Dominion University teams scored big in the sixth annual WorldQuest global knowledge competition held Nov. 16 in the Ted Constant Convocation Center.

The event is sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads.

The Old Dominion faculty team emerged victorious for the sixth consecutive year by pulling away from the second place Virginian-Pilot team in the final rounds of the quiz. The team included faculty members Chris Drake (geography), Tim Kidd (geography), Maria Fornella (political science), Glen Sussman (political science), Kurt Gaubatz (political science), Lorraine Lees (history), David Earnest (political science) and John Heyl (history).

Old Dominion's student team finished a strong second to the College of William and Mary and included Jessica Vance (team leader), Jacqueline Owen, Daniel Kuthy, Chris Pearson, Alex Palmer, Techernavian Moten, Angelia Sanders, Leslie Harlson and Ryan Weber. This was the best finish for an ODU student team since the inception of the competition in 1999.
