San Tan Valley Students Shine in County-Wide Math Competition


Students from Poston Butte High School, located in the heart of San Tan Valley and part of the Florence Unified School District, have recently showcased their mathematical prowess, achieving commendable success at the Central Arizona College Pinal County High School math competition. The event, a gathering of some of the brightest young minds from across the county, was held at CAC's Signal Peak Campus in Coolidge on April 4, 2024.

In a notable triumph, 10th graders Gavin Patterson and Lily Venator clinched first place in the Level 1 team competition, setting a high bar for excellence and teamwork. Their victory is not just a personal achievement but a proud moment for the entire Poston Butte community, highlighting the school's commitment to fostering an environment where academic talents can flourish.

The competition, which saw participation from around 200 students representing various schools across Pinal County, was fiercely contested. However, Poston Butte stood out significantly, with seven of its students qualifying for the finals—a testament to the exceptional skill and hard work of the students. Finalists included Tina Thai, Graeson Herman, Brayden Lantz, Katie Kazmierczak, Adelene Martinez-Ruiz, Venator, and Patterson, each demonstrating remarkable mathematical acumen.

Adding to the school's list of accomplishments, Patterson, along with 12th grader Katie Kazmierczak, also earned spots in the Top 15 in the finals. This prestigious distinction places them among the top mathletes in the county, an honor that speaks volumes about their dedication and the quality of education at Poston Butte.

The Florence Unified School District has extended its congratulations to the students for their impressive showing at the competition. Their achievements serve not only as a source of pride for the district but also as an inspiration to their peers, encouraging other students to pursue excellence in their academic endeavors.

Central Arizona College, with campuses in Apache Junction, San Tan Valley, Coolidge, Maricopa, and Winkleman, has long been a proponent of academic competitions, providing a platform for students to challenge themselves and grow. Events like these are crucial in nurturing the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and innovators.
