PHS, Governor Baxter Students Score in Academic Bowl
Posted on 12/23/2014

Two Portland High School students were part of a Governor Baxter School for the Deaf team that recently competed successfully in the annual Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing students in Rome, N.Y.

There were 17 schools participating from the Northeast, with only four winners qualifying to compete nationally at Gallaudet University in April.

The Governor Baxter School for the Deaf team included two PHS students: freshman Taylor Gagnon, and senior Courtney Camire. The team won fourth place overall and now qualifies for an all-expenses-paid trip to the nationals.

This is the first time students from Baxter have made it to the nationals.
