MOUNT PLEASANT — Cedarville and Brethren will compete at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday on WCMU Public Television’s Quiz Central.

Quiz Central is an educational and entertaining academic quiz show. Teams from 48 Michigan high schools compete in four divisions based on school size.

Cedarville is coached by Hank McClure and team members include Captain Eden Preston, Alena Balyeat, Chris Vagts and Mick Bickham. Their alternates are Grace Snyder, Selah Preston and Drew Bailey.

Brethren is coached by Julie Riggs and team members include Captain Taylor Cordes, Whitney Dean, Charlee Schaefer and Jake Riggs.

Teams compete in elimination rounds as they vie for the championship in their division. The four starters and three alternates of the division championship teams will each receive a two year, $4,000 room and board scholarship from Central Michigan University Residence Life.

The division champions then face off to determine the overall season winner.

In addition, four lucky Quiz Central seniors will receive textbook scholarships from the CMU Bookstore.

Now in its 13th season, Quiz Central is locally produced by WCMU Public Television.
