Fontbonne SLP Grad Students Successfully Defend Title

 
During the Missouri Speech-Language Hearing Association’s annual convention this month, a team of Fontbonne University graduate students participated in — and won — the Quest for the Cup. The Quest is an annual competition pitting together teams of speech-language pathology students from eight Missouri colleges in a Jeopardy-style quiz game. The teams must answer questions that test their proficiency in speech, language and hearing knowledge.
 
Fontbonne’s team defended its 2010 title successfully, and is the only team to win twice in a row, as well as the only team to have won three times since the competition began in 2004.

“We are very proud of all our students for many reasons, and this is certainly an example of why,” said Dr. Gale Rice, professor and chair of Fontbonne’s department of communication disorders and deaf education.
 
The MSHA’s convention took place April 1-3 at Tan-Tar-A Resort in the Missouri Ozarks.
