This column is for readers interested in what is happening in the lives of students on the campus of Luverne Schools.

And it is especially for the parents who ask their children, &#8220What's going on at school today?” and their reply is, of course, &#8220Nothing.”

We will try to cover all kinds of topics, and we welcome hearing from those &#8220in the know” of the achievements of our students and teachers.

Recently, in January, the Luverne High Scholars Bowl Team won a district competition for small schools at Troy University.

According to Coach Anne Head, this team will go on to Regional competition on March 10th.

The team members include Jacob Sexton, Keith Hermeling, Weston McDougald, Joey Mote, Gary Dobbs, Jake Allison and Cody Smith.

Way to go, Scholars Bowl Team!

Good luck at Regionals!
