Florida House to recognize Chipola College Brain Bowl team

The Florida House of Representatives will recognize members of the 2012-2013 Chipola College Brain Bowl team Wednesday in Tallahassee.

From the chamber floor, State Rep. Marti Coley, R-Marianna, is scheduled at 11:30 a.m. EDT to acknowledge the Chipola visitors, who will be seated in the House gallery. The House Speaker pro tempore is expected to note some of the team's accomplishments which are outlined in a resolution (HR 9091) she introduced in April.

Head Coach Stan Young, in a phone interview Tuesday, said he and the majority of the team would be making the trip to the State Capitol.

"We think it's a tremendous honor to be recognized by the Florida House of Representatives."

Wednesday's recognition is testament to the many record-setting accomplishments Young, assistant coach Robert Dunkle and the team have earned over the last few years -- at the regional, state and national level.

The Brain Bowl team will also be recognized Thursday in Marianna, at the high school tournament, 1:30 p.m. CDT in Building Z, Chipola College.
