Jewell wins New Richmond Middle School Geography Bee

They next time Abby Jewell’s family goes on a driving trip for vacation they can leave their GPS at home. When they want to know where they’re at, all they have to do is ask Abby.

“My mom (Rebecca Jewell) and my grandma (Beverly Jewell) take me to a lot of historic places in the summer and I’ve always paid attention to where we’re at,” said Abby Jewell, an eighth grader at New Richmond Middle School.

The summer trips coupled with her interests in social studies and history paid off for Abby in the school-level competition of the National Georgraphic Bee.
