Buda Elementary buzzes in 00lational Geographic Bee BY JAYNE BAKER Special to the Hays Free Press Buda Elementary fifth grader Caleb Cullen knows that after the United States and France, ]apan ranks as the world's third-largest nuclear energy producing country. This knowledge made him school champi- on in this month's 22 nd An- nual National Geographic Bee. Caleb now has a chance to win a $25,000 college scholarship in fu- ture competition. Jesse Bryan and Ari Al- lison finished second and third place on campus, re- spectively.

Fourth grade class winners included Aaron Barlow, Lia Griggs, Drew Cooper, Lizzie Salmeron and Allison. Fifth grade class winners included Bradley Scharmann, No- lan Kubsch, Cullen, Taylor Lundy and Bryan. Principal Lauri Schroed- er served as moderator for the bee, while reading teacher ]ayne Baker acted as judge.
