Franklin Education Foundation (FEF) Trivia Bee Winners!
- Keefe Insurance Is Patriot Place Trivia Bee Champion!
- Remington Middle School Is Patriot Place Middle School Trivia Bee Champion!
Two spirited, competitive FEF Trivia Bees held Wednesday night resulted in 2 new Patriot Place Champions and raised over $12,000 for the FEF grant program for Franklin Public Schools.
The Remington Middle School student team outlasted the Horace Mann team in the Patriot Place Championship Round to win the 2nd annual FEF Middle School Trivia Bee.
In the subsequent community FEF Trivia Bee, the Keefe Insurance team, composed of Franklin High School students in the FHS Mock Trial Club, beat 5 other teams in the Patriot Place Championship Round to win the 19th annual FEF Trivia Bee. This is the first time in the 19-year history of the FEF Trivia Bee that a team composed of high school students has won the bee.
In the Patriot Place Championship round, the Keefe Insurance team outlasted 5 other teams sponsored by Encore Music Academy, St. Mary’s Parish, Franklin Special Education Parents Advisory Council, Oak Street Elementary School PCC, and the Franklin School Committee. Kudos to the FHS Mock Trial Students, Keefe Insurance for sponsoring them, and Patriot Place for sponsoring the championship round!
