Exceptional students from area high schools gathered at Weatherford College on Friday, Feb. 6, to compete in the 13th annual Coyote Area Math Championship.
While waiting on their test results, the students listened to guest speaker Diana Cervantes, an epidemiologist with the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Cervantes explained to the students how important math is each day in her job. As an epidemiologist, she tracks data to determine patterns, causes and effects of illness in the general population.
Event coordinator Elsbeth Border said the event was a great success which brought more than 100 students to the WC campus for a day of educational competition.
“The Coyote Area Math Championship provides students an opportunity to socialize with other students that have similar interests, expand knowledge of the collegiate environment, and hone their math skills through competition,” Border said.
