MONROE — Chinmay Singh earned first place at the National 10th Grade Math Competition, according to a report from Union Academy Charter School. The competition was going to be held in Fort Worth, Texas, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was held virtually.
Singh is a senior Beta Club member at Union Academy Charter School in Monroe. He and more than 12,000 Beta students represented their schools at the virtual competition. The students were divided into two groups; juniors (grades 4-8) and seniors (grades 9-12).
Singh competed and earned awards at the state level convention held in Greensboro in February. His achievements there afforded him a chance to compete at the national level.
With more than 500,000 active members and 8,750 clubs nationally and internationally, National Beta has become the nation’s largest independent, non-profit, educational youth organization. National Beta promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, service and leadership among elementary and secondary school students.
