EAGLE – Seventh grader Daillen Culver is somewhat of a celebrity at the school at Eagle Valley Middle School. By winning the geography bee at Eagle Valley Middle, Culver qualified for the state round of the National Geographic Bee, which will be held March 31 at the University of Denver. “The kids are really proud of her. I don’t remember anyone making it to states during my 10 years here at EVMS, so it’s a really big deal,” says teacher Nicole Dewell. “I expect we’ll be seeing her name in the papers a lot in the future – she’s a talented, smart girl.”One winner from each state and territory advances to the national competition in Washington, D.C. “In this 18th year of participating in the bee, EVMS is thrilled to have a female qualifier,” said Barbara Romersheuser, organizer of Eagle Valley Middle’s geography bee. “Many of her peers were rooting for Daillen and the entire school is proud to have her represent EVMS.”Vail, Colorado
