Tune-in to KDKA-TV at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 7, 2019, and again at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 14, to watch Quaker Valley High School students compete in an episode of KDKA's Hometown High Q, an academic challenge hosted by KDKA morning anchor Rick Dayton.
The Quaker Valley team is comprised of seniors Phoebe Morrill, Shane Hale, Tarun Venkatasamy, and Isaac Lang. Coached by high school math teacher Matt Welch and assisted by academic specialist Linda Conlon, the team will compete on Hometown High Q against teams from Shady Side Academy and Hempfield High School. This is the 15th consecutive year Quaker Valley High School has competed in KDKA's Hometown High Q.
The half-hour show pits three school teams, which are comprised of three students each, against one another. Students must answer questions from a variety of general high school curriculum subject areas. The top nine schools in the competition are awarded educational grants provided by Williams.
