A smile seems like a simple thing. It requires little effort--just a few facial muscles are involved. It costs absolutely nothing. And it takes no time. You can meet a person and smile without ever breaking stride.

News from Adair County School District

The Adair County High School Academic Team won the 2015 Governor’s Cup District Championship on Saturday, January 24, for the 10th year in a row. The competition took place at Green County High School, and the Quick Recall team swept through each round of Quick Recall undefeated. In addition, the Future Problem Solving team—a perennial world championship qualifier—swept all judges’ top rankings for 1st Place in their competition.

The feat of ten straight District titles engraves Adair County in the record books among few other teams at the high school level. Coach Brett Reliford commented about the accomplishment, "These kids have so much to be proud of, along with the school and past participants who started and continued this streak. They are part of a legacy that has come with a lot of hard work, time, dedication, and trust in each other and trust in their coach that the system works. This was no 10-year fluke."
