The Connors State College Academic Team defeated Northern Oklahoma College Red Team at the KSBI mind games tournament held at the KSBI studio in Yukon, Okla. Mind Games, An Oklahoma Academic Challenge, is a new prime time Oklahoma television program that brings teams of students from Oklahoma colleges and universities in a weekly battle of the brains. President of Connors State College, Dr. Timothy Faltyn said, The Mind Games is an excellent opportunity for Connors students to not only earn scholarships, but also showcase our academic talent.
Connors created their academic team by holding try-outs earlier in the semester. CSC team members include, Stephanie Anderson, Jessica Monks, Gyllna Drew, Kaylay Lewis, and Patrica Gillilland. Their first win earned the CSC Academic team $2250 in scholarship money. Throughout the Fall of 2011 and Spring 2012 semesters, students will be contending for scholarships totaling $200,000!
Connors will return on October 26 to compete against Rogers State. “I feel that the students on our academic team represented Connors State College well during their initial appearance in Mind Games. I expect them to do equally well when they play Rogers State. We will be having weekly practices to sharpen our minds!” commented Lynett Rock, Academic Team Advisor and Division chair-Math, Science, P.E.
