WILLIAMSTOWN - The SEE Fund will host a student Quiz Bowl, similar to the popular TV game show "As Schools Match Wits," on Thursday, March 14, at Mount Greylock Regional School.
The competition will be broadcast live from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on channel 16 (WilliNet) in Williamstown and on March 20 in Lanesborough.
This event will serve as a fundraiser for educational initiatives at the school.
Blair Dils, a faculty member and coach of the Mount Greylock "As Schools Match Wits" team, will emcee the Quiz Bowl. He and other faculty will compose questions in the categories of humanities, science and math, sports and health, and pop culture. For each category, there will be two teams of three students, and one segment of the contest will pit the Mount Greylock "As Schools Match Wits" team against a team of faculty members.
While the game is under way, student volunteers will be talking by phone with families and friends of MGRHS to ask for their financial support.
The student leaders for the event are Sean Houston, Alexandra Delano, and Zach Harrington, who are all members of the SEE Fund Board of Governors. The Board hopes to raise $5,000 - funds that will support future grants for programs at Mount Greylock that are not covered by the regular school budget.
The SEE (Sustaining Educational Excellence) Fund was established in 1996 as the first non-profit educational endowment in Berkshire County. It is managed by the Berkshire Taconic
