Our Robotics team is "Making Gettys Great" with a number of award-winning performances recently. The team led by Mr. Tharpe, STEM teacher, and Team 77240G earned the Excellence Award, VEX Robotics highest award, for the second straight week in a row. That team consists of Calder Adams, Wyatt Reeves, Anders Mickelson and Kathrin Patterson, which qualified them for the state and national Vex Robotics competitions! In addition, we had 6 teams make it through the qualifying rounds and into the Round of 16 at Walhalla last Saturday. In addition, three teams made it into the quarterfinals. STEM success at GMS, preparing students for careers and beyond!
