Milford Central Academy and Milford High School Odyssey of the Mind (OOtM) team performed at OotM World Finals at Michigan State University last week. The team scored in the top 15 after competing with teams from China, Russia, Poland, Singapore, Korea, Japan, India, United States and other teams from all over the world. This represents an improvement of 15 places, since last year’s World Finals event. “These students exemplify hard work, a growth mindset, and the chemistry that comes from working together as a team over the years and never giving up,” stated Mrs. Judith Woods, MCA Teacher. “It has been an honor to work with them and see the amazing things they have accomplished. They are already planning out their strategy for next year’s problem.”
The team was coached by Adam and Molly Brownstein, who showed dedication and spirit, and helped these awesome students shine. OotM students included Caleb Brownstein, Rhyana Johnson, Bethany Pasmore, Jacob Keesler-Evans, Delaney Dillon and Bella Keesler-Evans. Although Abby Baird could not make it to Worlds because of another commitment, she also worked in contributing to the team’s solution.
