Tune-in to KDKA-TV at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 28, 2023, and again at 11:30 a.m. on February 4, to watch Quaker Valley High School students compete in an episode of KDKA's Hometown High Q, an academic challenge hosted by KDKA weatherman Ray Petelin.
The Quaker Valley “on screen” team is comprised of seniors Keira Currier, Logan Zutter, and Eric Weicht. Seniors Meg Orie, Julie Rafla, Felipe Correa, and Meera Kumar serve as alternates for the team. Coached by high school math teacher Matt Welch and assisted by academic specialist Abby Bator, the team will compete on Hometown High Q against teams from Uniontown and Woodland Hills High Schools. This is the 18th consecutive year Quaker Valley High School has competed in KDKA's Hometown High Q. Quaker Valley has qualified for the High Q Playoffs in 8 of the last 9 years.
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 GBU Life.
