This past weekend, Joshua and Jacob Felty competed in the UIL Regional Current Events contest in Commerce. Josh came away with third place and Jacob placed fourth. The competition was extremely tight. First and second place tied with a score of 29 points. Josh had 28.5 points and Jacob came in with 28 points. Placing third qualified Josh for the state competition. Jacob will also go to the state competition as the first alternate. EISD is very proud of Josh and Jacob!
