by Asami Nelson

Every morning at Reedley High School, before the sun rises above the football stadium, the students of Academic Decathlon are on campus working diligently to study for their yearly competition. Academic Decathlon is a nationwide contest in which Decathletes are tested in seven areas, along with giving two speeches and having an interview.

“Every morning I arrive at RHS at 6:40 a.m., and have the opportunity to coach and mentor some of the most savvy and skillful students on campus.” Those are the words of Amber Hunt, a French teacher at Reedley High; she is also Reedley’s Academic Decathlon coach. You heard her. Six-forty a.m. every day, and the students aren’t far behind. Their long day begins at 7:00 a.m.
