Bernardo Yorba Middle School with 73 students, was the largest group invited to attend the Richard Nixon Library on April 20th.

Students had to get a score of 26 out of 30 on the Richard Nixon Map Test to attend.

“Seven schools were represented,” stated Mr. Shen, A BYMS Social Studies teacher who awarded students at the ceremony for BYMS, in an interview with the Matador Messenger. “Those seven schools were St. Francis, St. Joseph, Community Home School, Parkview, Yorba Linda Middle, Tuffree, Travis Ranch, and Bernardo Yorba.”

“I think the hardest part of the test was memorizing all of the countries,” stated Zach Lillemoen, a BYMS student who scored 26 out of 30 on the Richard Nixon Library test.

“I think the most difficult part of the test was naming the islands that I couldn’t pronounce and it was hard to study them,” stated Reese Cabral, another BYMS student who scored 26 out of 30 on the Richard Nixon Library test, in an interview with the Matador Messenger.

“I think it was difficult to learn all the countries, islands, seas, and lakes,” stated Megan Hwang, a BYMS student who did not attend the Richard Nixon Library, in an interview with the Matador Messenger.
