Chesterfield trivia buffs to put brains to the test

January 22, 2014 by  

For those Chesterfield minutia buffs who enjoy showing off their trivia skills, Chesterfield’s Parkway Central High School will be holding a Trivia Night this weekend. The proceeds from the event will go to defray the cost of the high school’s 2015 graduation.

Players will be arranged around tables in groups of eight, so signing up in team of eight or fewer is encouraged. Individuals and couples will be placed with others to complete the tables, and should bring your own snacks and drinks. Trivia patrons can also bid on merchandise at the silent auction. Any parent with children graduating from Parkway Central in 2015, or the students themselves, may want to have some flyer printing done to promote this event.

Here’s some Parkway Central High School trivia: the school was established in 1954 and has a student body of a little more than 1,260 students. It has a faculty of 87 teachers, one social worker, two librarians, five administrators, 12 special education teachers, and five counselors. In 2012, the school graduated 309 students, of which 79% went on to four-year colleges, 13% went on to two-year colleges, 2% went into the military, and 6% went on to other endeavors.

Trivia Night will be held Saturday January 25, at 6:00 pm at the Gateway Sports Center, 140 Long Road in Chesterfield. The event itself will begin at 6:00 pm and the games will start at 7:00 pm. The fee is $20 per player. To sign up, contact coordinator Melanie Beck.
