High Schools Square Off In Brentwood Historic Commission’s

“4th Annual History Bowl:  Battle of the Minds”              

The “Battle of the Minds” took to the classroom on February 27th at Brentwood City Hall for the Brentwood Historic Commission’s 4th Annual History Bowl.


For the first time, the event was expanded to include and feature students from 6 Williamson County High Schools: Brentwood, Centennial, Franklin, Independence, Ravenwood and Summit High Schools all competing for the Sarah Bayrd American History Trophy.  Chris Clark former news anchor and current MTSU adjunct professor served as host and Chuck Sherrill, Director of the Tennessee State Library and Archives and Brentwood Historic Commission member, was the questioner.  The fast paced event featured five rounds of  American history questions in a format similar to popular quiz shows such as Jeopardy.    In the end, Summit  took home the trophy.  The Centennial team came in second and Brentwood in third.  All of the teams did a great job and we look forward to next year’s competition.
